FOUND: Gingerbread Skeletons

 Morbid... yet... festive.   Nothing like a display of Gingerbread Skeletons to bring holiday cheer to a home.  



  1. 1
    In a large mixing bowl, cream the sugar and butter together. Add molasses and water.
  2. 2
    In a separate bowl, mix the flour, salt, nutmeg, baking soda, ginger, and allspice. Gradually add the dry mixture to the wet and blend until the dough holds together.
  3. 3
    Cover and chill for 2-3 hours.
  4. 4
    Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  5. 5
    Roll out dough 1/4" thick on a lightly floured surface.
  6. 6
    Cut into shapes with cookie cutters and transfer to cookie sheet.
  7. 7
    Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool on baking sheets or cooling racks.
  8. 8
    Using the white decorating icing, decorate the cookies with "bones" so that they resemble skeletons.
