❓WHAT KIND OF ICING SHOULD I USE FOR DECORATING❓
You can use store bought decorators icing for decorating gingerbread cookies which is sold in tubes or pouches. Another option is to make your own homemade royal icing and dye it the colors you’d like. You want to make sure that you are using an icing, not a frosting as they are two different things. Detailed decorating is best done with icing. Be careful when working with icing as it does dry fairly quickly.
6 tablespoons salted butter, softened
1/4 cup brown sugar, tightly packed
1/3 cup dark molasses
1 large egg
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1. Use a hand mixer or stand mixer to cream butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Mix in molasses, egg, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, cloves, baking soda, and salt until smooth, scraping the sides as necessary. Add in the flour until well incorporated.
2. Remove the dough from the bowl and rap the dough in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 1 hour.
3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
4. Roll the dough out to 1/4-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. Use a gingerbread man cookie cutter (or other shapes) to cut out cookies. Lay cut cookies on the prepared baking sheet, 1 to 2 inches apart. Re-roll the dough as necessary to cut out cookies until dough is gone.
5. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes.
6. Let cool on pan for 2 minutes before removing and cooling on a wire rack. Cool completely (about 30 minutes) before decorating
