Gingerbread Cookies- The Loveless Cafe

Gingerbread cookies are no doubt a favorite around the holidays. However, you will never get that perfectly sweet, spicy flavor or the ideal consistency of crispy yet melt-in-your-mouth chewy from a store-bought package. These traditional cookies are best made from scratch and our recipe does not disappoint. Here’s how you do it.





Classic Gingerbread Cookies




¾ cup butter

¾ cup light brown sugar

1 large or 2 small eggs

2/3 cup dark molasses

4 cups flour

2/3 teaspoon baking soda

2/3 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons powdered ginger


In a bowl with an electric mixer, cream room temperature butter with brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and molasses and incorporate fully. Sift together dry ingredients and add in thirds until incorporated. Refrigerate dough for 8 hours and roll to ¼ thick before cutting into desired shapes. Bake at 325 for 10-12 minutes – less for softer cookies and more for crispy cookies. Decorate as desired.
