Whole Wheat Gingerbread Men and Women
- 3 cups (360 g) whole wheat flour
- 3 cups (440 g) all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 4 tsp ground ginger
- 1 1/2 tsp ground cloves
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1 cup (190 g) Earth Balance margarine
- 1 cup (130 g) coconut palm sugar
- 1 cup ( 320 g) molasses
- 2 eggs
Turn the oven on to 350 degrees. Prepare 1-2 cookie trays with paper or nonstick slip mat.
Combine all the dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Set aside.
In a kitchen aid or with an electric mixer, beat Earth Balance and palm sugar till fluffy. Beat in one egg at the time. Then beat in molasses.
Mix in the dry ingredients till everything is incorporated.
Sprinkle a good amount of flour on the table, and roll out dough to about 1/8 inch thickness. Use cookie cutters to cut out desired shapes. Remember to make holes in the cookies BEFORE baking, if you are planning to hang them.
Bake the cookies for 12-14 min. depending on size. Cool on rack.
When cookies are cool, you can decorate them with royal icing if desired. I always trust Martha Stewart when it comes to good old “normal” recipes like that:-)
