Gingerbread Man Cookie Recipe
Recipe posted by Palouse Brand on November 30, 2016
For this special occasion, we are providing you our very own gingerbread cookies recipe. Too often, gingerbread cookies are hard, dry, and lacking in flavor. They are great for building gingerbread houses, but not for eating. It’s no wonder we only bake them during the holiday season! This does not need to be the case. The spiced ginger flavor actually pairs well with many fruits like peaches, plums, cherries, apricots, and berries. Think about sitting outside on a warm spring evening with a bowl of ice cream, fresh berries, and this gingerbread cookie. Yum! Or served in late summer with a bowl of ice cream and a side of grilled peaches. Perfect!
This recipe for gingerbread cookies epitomizes the ideal gingerbread cookie in every way. They are crisp around the edges but soft and chewy in the centers. Think of the soft, chewy, texture of a ginger molasses cookie but in cut-out form! They are as buttery as your favorite sugar cookie and packed with ginger and molasses flavor. We promise that they are only slightly addicting and will have you sneaking back to the cookie tray for 2nds, 3rds, 4ths…we think you get the idea.
We make these cookies with our fresh milled Soft White Wheat Berries. The soft white wheat berries have a lower percentage of gluten forming proteins. This is what you are looking for in the tender crumb of a cookie. The flavor of freshly milled flour is quite evident in these cookies and outshines the pre-milled flours found at the grocery store.
We have included a simple powdered glaze for decorating your cookies. This glaze is easy to make and will set up quickly. Enjoy your gingerbread cookies recipe!
Tip for Baking with Soft White Wheat: To ensure a soft texture, we sift our flour in this recipe to remove the larger pieces of bran that do not get finely ground. This extra bran can simply be added to another recipe or is a wonderful option for breading fish or chicken.
