GOOD MORNING! I promised a good friend of mine, that I would share my gingerbread man recipe with her. So I thought it would be fun to put it on my blog and everyone could enjoy! It is very low cal and more like a bread than a cookie. ENJOY! (NOTICE THE SANTA MADE BY JULIE OF MY RAGGEDY DOLLS IN THE BACKGROUND! Thanks Julie!)

1 1/2 cups molasses
1 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup cold water
1/3 cup oil
7 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. allspice
1 tsp. cloves

Mix dry and wet ingredients separately and then together. Cover and refrigerate at least two hours. Cut into shapes using your favorite gingerbread cookie cutter. (I love to use my tiny ones the best and cut little hearts into them!!!) Bake at 350 degrees on a greased cookie sheet for 10-12 minutes. Don't over bake unless you want them very hard. You can decorate with icing or just eat them plain. Makes 2 1/2 dozen. YUMMY! ENJOY!
