desserts | Experiment with the cookie decorations. For example, use 1/8-inch satin ribbons for bow ties, and raisins, cinnamon hearts or silver nonpareils to make eyes, nose, mouth and buttons.





2 3/4 cup cake flour, sifted

1 Tbsp baking powder

1 Tbsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp ground cloves

1 tsp ground ginger

1/2 tsp table salt

1/4 tsp baking soda

1 large egg(s), beaten

1 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed

3/4 cup molasses, dark

1/4 tsp ground allspice

1/2 cup reduced-calorie margarine, at room temperature






In a large bowl, sift together first seven ingredients; set aside. In mixer on medium, beat egg, allspice, brown sugar, molasses and margarine. Add dry ingredients to liquid ingredients, a little at a time, mixing after each addition to form a stiff dough.



Gather dough into 2 equal balls, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, 1 hour.



Heat oven to 375°F. Lightly grease baking sheet(s) with nonstick cooking spray.



Remove 1 ball of dough from refrigerator and roll it out on a lightly floured surface to a 1/3-inch thickness. Cut gingerbread shapes from dough with floured cutters (about 3 inches tall). Decorate as desired with oven-safe decorations.



Transfer cookies to baking sheet(s). Bake until slightly firm, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool. Yields 60 cookies. POINTS do not include decorations

Always take a minute to plan for success! You are worth the effort.
