Did not turn out well. I followed the instructions exactly and I am not exactly a novice cook. The dough was so runny I couldn’t use cookie cutters

This recipe is perfect and I do take the cloves out just to make it better for the whole family and a bit sweeter! Everyone loves this gingerbread!

Made them last year and now we make them every year delicious and incredible! The ingredients called for nutmeg but oddly the directions don't mention it

I added LOTS of ginger and would suggest to always do that because it gave it a strong tasty flavor after baked. My oven did not bake it all that well after 18 minutes so I put it in there for 22 minutes and it baked perfectly. Over all this recipe was delicious and fun to make with little kids that need something to do.

Great recipe! Usually I don't like the strong molasses flavor of Gingerbread cookies, but these taste amazing! I neglected to add salt because I used salted butter, but the dough tasted great! After baking, the flavor lessened, so I would suggest basting them with butter then sprinkling them with cloves or something similar to give them a bit more kick :)

This is a great recipe to make with my kids. Delicious, chewy and not too sweet. Recipe makes about 24 cut out cookies. Love it!
