"Stripling Warrior" Gingerbread Boys

One a week my family hold this activity called "Family Home Evening" where we study scriptures, and the application of it in our lives. We start with a song from the church hymnbook or primary song, followed by a prayer. Then, the lessons for the week and then activity related to the lesson. Of course, the snack! For a snack, here is one of them which we do as family for snack.

Ingredients: 3/4 cup molasses,1/3 cup packed brown sugar, 1/3 cup water, 1/8 cup butter, softened, 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice, 1 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/2 teaspoon ground clover, 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions: In a medium bowl, mix together the molasses, brown sugar, water and butter until smooth. Combine the flour, baking soda, allspice, ginger, cloves and cinnamon, stir them into the wet mixture until all of the dry is absorbed. Cover the dough and chill for at least 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. Cut out with a gingerbread boy cutter. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove from the cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.

Treat Time : Help children decorate cookies with icing to resemble “Stripling Warriors.”
