Dairy-free Gingerbread Men Cookies

Dairy-free Gingerbread Men Cookies

These spicy gingerbread cookies are so chewy and yummy as well as dairy/milk free.  Be sure not to over bake!

1/2 c dairy-free margarine (I used Fleischmann’s Unsalted)

3/4 c light brown sugar

1/2 c molasses

1 egg yolk

2 c all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1 tsp. ground cloves

1/2-1 tsp. ground ginger

1/2 tsp. nutmeg

In a large mixing bowl, cream together dairy-free margarine and brown sugar until smooth.  Add molasses and egg yolk and mix together.  In a separate bowl, combine together dry ingredients.  Add to wet ingredients and mix together until smooth.  Cover and chill for 1 hour in the fridge.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  When dough is ready, on a lightly floured surface roll dough out to 1/4 inch thick.  Cut out desired shapes with cookie cutters.  Place cookies 2” apart on un-greased cookie sheets.  Bake for 8-10 minutes in preheated oven until firm.  Allow to cool a few minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack.  When cookies are cool, frost or decorate as desired using dairy-free frosting/icing and candies.
