This is a great replacement for the standard gingerbread recipe. The cookies turn out soft, and the flavor is not sharp or hot. It has been a family tradition with my family throughout every holiday season.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened

  • 1 cup molasses

  • ½ cup sour cream

  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar

  • 4 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.

  2. In a large bowl, stir together the butter, molasses, sour cream, brown sugar and vinegar until smooth and well blended. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, ginger and cinnamon; stir into the molasses mixture. Dough will be very stiff when complete.

  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/4 inch in thickness. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Place cookies 1 1/2 inches apart onto prepared cookie sheets.

  4. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Cookies can be iced, when cooled, with any standard icing recipe.
