It looks like we've found the perfect gingerbread recipe, and are excited to let you know about it! It's been a rainy few days here in Portland, so naturally we put on some Christmas tunes, turned on the Christmas lights & made the best gingerbread cookies. Hope you enjoy!

-3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar

-1 stick butter or margarine, softened

-2 large eggs

-1/4 cup molasses

-3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting work surface

-2 teaspoons ground ginger

-1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

-1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

-1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

-1/2 teaspoon salt


Using an electric mixer at low speed, cream the sugar and butter until thoroughly combined. Add the eggs and molasses and mix until combined. Sift together the flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and combine with a spoon or spatula.

Remove the dough from the bowl and wrap in plastic wrap; place in the refrigerator until firm, about 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Allow the dough to sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes, until pliable. Take about 1/2 cup of dough at a time and roll onto a floured board until about 1/8-inch thick. Cut out with gingerbread boy and girl cookie cutters. You can re-roll the scraps. Using a spatula, transfer the cookies from the board to the prepared cookie sheets.

Bake for 10 minutes, until just beginning to brown at the edges. Transfer to wire racks to cool
