from joy of cooking...I added a little extra sugar and a little golden syrup cause I ran out of molasses.

5 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup molasses
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon ginger
1 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 cup golden syrup

Recipe Directions for gingerbread men

In a sauce pan over medium heat melt butter and add sugar and then molasses and dissolve til sugar is not gritty. in a bowl combine the dry ingredients (4.5 cups of the 5 cups of flour). make a well in the dry ingredients. when the molasses mixture is cooled pour into the well and combine. work in the last half cup of flour.(if it is too crumbly to combine sprinkle in some water) and work into a ball and kneed for a minute. then roll out into a 1/4 thick circle and use a gingerbreadman cookie cutter. bake on a sheet with parchment paper at 350-375 for 8-10 minutes.
