I made these for a work party and they were awesome! If you roll them pretty flat (1/8") be prepared to yield about 5 dozen small (4 1/2") ginger bread men from this recipe. This was my first attempt at Ginger bread and it was a fairly easy recipe. I found a simple Royal Icing recipe which I would recommend as a nice compliment to add to the Ginger bread flavor.
This recipe is great,however, add 1 tsp of baking POWDER and they will come out really soft and nice.
