Best Gingerbread (ever!)

We love all of the spices and blends made by The Epicentre spice company of Bridgenorth, Ontario. We also appreciate that they use the freshest and best quality herbs & spices available.  

  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 heaping Tbsp “Everything Nice Baking Spice” (more or less if desired)
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup shortening or margarine
  • ⅓ cup fancy molasses
  • ⅓ cup blackstrap molasses 

Preheat oven to 375°F/190°C. Combine dry ingredients together and set aside. Cream shortening or margarine. Add molasses, beating well. Gradually add dry ingredients. Chill dough 1 hour. Roll out dough to ⅛ inch thickness (or thicker, but watch baking time). Cut with cookie cutter shapes. Bake on a parchment paper lined sheet or lightly greased cookie sheet for 5 - 7 minutes. Let cool before decorating.
