Learn How it Works...
3/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1 large Land O Lakes® Egg
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 to 2 tablespoons milk
Green food color
Decorator sugars and candies, as desired
Line cookie sheet with aluminum foil; set aside.
Combine 3/4 cup butter, brown sugar, molasses and egg in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add all remaining gingerbread ingredients; beat at low speed until well mixed. Cover; refrigerate 1-2 hours or until firm.
Heat oven to 350°F.
Divide dough in half. Pat each half of dough onto prepared cookie sheet to 12x9-inch tree shape with 3x2-inch base. Smooth edges of dough with knife. Bake 12-15 minutes or until no indentation remains when touched. Cool completely.
Combine powdered sugar, 1/3 cup butter and vanilla in bowl. Beat at low speed, gradually adding enough milk, for desired spreading consistency. Stir in food color. Frost cooled trees; decorate as desired.
