Gingerbread

I’ve tried many recipes for gingerbread and I like this one the best.  The ratio of ginger to cinnamon gives a nice bite to the cookie and the texture is pleasing to the mouth.

Mix dry into wet.  Chill for at least an hour.  Roll on parchment paper and cut out shapes using a variety of cookie cutters.  Place on cookie sheets and bake at 350 degrees for 11-13 minutes.  Cool and decorate as desired.
