IngredientsFor the Gingerbread Cookies:

  • 2 and 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 and 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 and 1/2 sticks unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup molasses (mild not blackstrap)

For the Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • (1) 8 ounce block full-fat cream cheese VERY soft
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter VERY soft
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla pure extract
  • 2 cups confectioners sugar sifted
  • 2 teaspoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • Sprinkles optional

InstructionsFor the Gingerbread Cookies:

  1. In a large bowl whisk together the flour ginger cinnamon cloves baking soda and salt; set aside.
  2. Add butter both sugars and vanilla to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment; beat on medium-speed until light and fluffy; scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed about 2 minutes. Add in the eggs one at a time beating well after each addition continuing to scrape the sides as needed. Add the molasses and beat until combined. Reduce the mixer speed to low and slowly add dry ingredients beating just until combined.

  2. Roll the dough into 2 balls and arrange on prepared sheets spacing them about 2 inches apart. Lightly press down on the center of each cookie. Bake one sheet at a time for 9-10 minutes or until puffed and lightly golden.

  4. For the cream cheese frosting:
  5. In the bowl of a stand-mixer fitted with the paddle attachment beat the cream cheese butter and vanilla on medium-high speed until completely smooth; about 2 minutes. Reduce the speed to low and gradually add the sifted confectioners sugar. Once all of the sugar has been added increase speed to medium-high and beat for 1-2 minutes. Add in lemon juice and lemon zest and beat for an additional minute. Once the cookies have completely cooled spread the frosting over the top of each cookie and decorate with sprinkles if desired.
