I didn't realize how much I love Gingerbread Cookies!
This may be known as a Christmas Cookie Recipe however this recipe is a perfect dessert or tasty treat year round!
I made this into a chocolate chip cookie recipe instead of using frosting for decoration.
I also tried a few with a cinnamon sugar decoration by simply mixing together sugar and cinnamon then sprinkle the mixture onto the cookie dough and bake! Two great cookies in one batch, making for a great variety for your family!

Pre-heat oven to 375
In a medium size mixing bowl combine all wet ingredients, place into microwave (30 seconds to 1 minute) or melt butter separately and mix all ingredients until well combined.
In a separate bowl mix together flour and remaining dry ingredients, mix until all dry ingredients are combined.
Gently fold flour mixture into the wet ingredients and stir until flour is completely mixed in, you should now have a cookie dough consistency.
Lightly grease a cookie sheet or line with parchment paper. Use a gingerbread cut out to shape cookie dough and place onto the cookie sheet or roll the dough into table spoon size balls.
Use chocolate chips to create your own designs on each gingerman, sprinkle with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar or make a mixture of both for some variety.
Place cookies into oven and bake for 10-12 minutes (cookies will become crunchier as they cool).
Depending on how you shape the cookies this recipe makes approx. 16-20 cookies.
