Ingredients
1 cup (250 mL) butter, softened
1 cup (250 mL) packed brown sugar
¼ cup (50 mL) molasses
1 egg
2 ¾ cup (675 mL) Robin Hood Original All Purpose Flour
2 tsp (10 mL) baking soda
2 tsp (10 mL) ground cinnamon
1 tbsp (15 mL) ground ginger
½ tsp (2 mL) ground cloves
½ tsp (2 mL) salt
Icing, candy canes, red jelly beans, assorted candies
Directions
  1. Cream butter, brown sugar, molasses and egg together thoroughly, in a large mixing bowl using an electric mixer, until light and fluffy in texture. Add remaining ingredients gradually to butter mixture, mixing well.
  2. Chill dough for 30 minutes for easy rolling.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  4. Roll dough ¼” (6 mm) thick on floured surface. Cut with a 3” (7.6 cm) gingerbread man cookie cutter. Place on prepared baking sheets.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or until cookies are set.
  6. Cool on wire cooling rack.

Decorating reindeer: turn gingerbread men upside down so the feet become the antlers and the head becomes the nose. Decorated as desired.
