OK. So Mary gave me lots of recipes over the years. She's a great cook! This is a good recipe for gingerbread. Be sure to roll them thickly so that they won't break. The larger the cutter the more difficult to pick up from the baking pan. So, thickness is important. Have fun decorating them once they are cooled!
