My favorite gingerbread recipe, from Domino's Sugar. Nice and cake-like, especially when rolled thick. interestingly, Paula Deen uses this same recipe - although I got it from the Sunday Parade over 15 years ago.

Recipe Ingredients for Gingerbread People

3/4 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
1/4 cup molasses
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons ginger
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup confectioner's sugar
1 1/2 tbsp skim milk

Recipe Directions for Gingerbread People

In a large bowl, beat sugar and butter until well-blended. Add eggs and molasses. Stir in remaining ingredients. Wrap in wax paper and chill at least 1 hour. Roll on well-floured board (dough will be dense) to desired thickness - at least 1/8 inch. Cut into shapes. Placed on cookie sheet sprayed with Pam. Bake 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool. Decorate with icing - blend of confectioner's sugar and milk.
