I know someone who just makes sugar cookies (the basic roll out and cut kind) and adds half a teaspoon of ground ginger to the dough while she's mixing it and calls it gingerbread. I'm looking for a good gingerbread recipe this year cause I want to make a gingerbread house for my son to decorate.

fun to make... this dough is easy to handle, rolls out smoothly, hold its shape, and best of all is "yummy" to eat. Bring to a boil, stir well and set aside to cool: 1/2 c. molasses 1/2 c. sugar 1 tbsp. vinegar When cool, beat slightly: Add to the mixture. Sift together: 1/2 tsp. salt 1/2 tsp. soda 1/2 tsp. cinnamon 1/2 tsp. ginger Add to the mixture, blend and pat into a ball. Roll in waxed paper and refrigerate overnight. Next day, roll out on lightly floured dough board to 1/4 inch thickness and cut in desired shapes. Bake on very lightly greased baking sheet in 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes. When cool decorate with a tube of already prepared icing from the grocery. Note: Heat, of stove ovens, does vary. If 375 degrees in your oven is too hot, try 350 degrees.
