How To Make a delicious Gingerbread Men Cookies

Ingredients :
Mixing Bowl
mixer or whisk
parchment paper
cookie sheet
plastic wrap
cookie cutter
Recipe Instructions
Step 1: Dry Ingredients
Combine flour, salt, baking soda, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and cinnamon in a medium bowl.
Step 2: Mix
In a large bowl, mix butter and sugar until smooth, then mix in the molasses, water, and vanilla. Add flour mixture in a little at a time until you have a soft dough.
Step 3: Wait
Divide the dough into two pieces, wrap them in plastic, and refrigerate for at least two hours – you need the dough to get firm so that you can work with it.
Step 4: Pre-Heat
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees (190 C, Gas Mark 5)
Step 5: Roll
Roll your dough out on a lightly floured surface until it's between 1/8 and 1/4 inch thick. Cut gingerbread men out with your cookie cutters and put them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Step 6: Bake
Bake your cookies about 9-12 minutes, until the edges are firm and they're lightly browned. Let them cool on the pan for 5 minutes, and then move them to a cooling rack.
Step 7: Decorate
This is where you can get creative. Use icings, frostings, candies, colored sugars, sprinkles, and other decorative edibles, and start layering them on the cookies. Use your imagination. Experiment. You can always eat any cookies that don't come out the way you want.
