Step 3: Making the Gingerbread Dough

Picture of Making the Gingerbread Dough

(Forgive me folks but this may be repetitive from my other gingerbread instructable)

I used a little hand mixer for some of this, but sometimes it got too much for that! So most of the time I just ended  up doing it with my hands, and boy were they sore by the time I was done!

Mix together the butter until it’s creamy smooth. Put the sugar into that and mix until it gets kind of fluffy and light. Mix in your eggs one at a time, then add Molasses and vanilla.

Mix the dry ingredients in a separate large bowl– Flour, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda and Salt.  Little bits at a time, add in the dry mixture to the wet, till you get a nice dough.  Wrap that puppy up, and put it in the refrigerator for 1 – 2 hours.
