How to make Gingerbread Cookies
Boil sugar, molasses, cinnamon and salt in a pan. Remove it from flame and then add baking soda and butter and stir until butter melts.
Immediately, mix in egg and flour. Mix well. Place it in refrigerator to chill for several hours until it is hard enough to roll.
Lightly flour a plain surface and roll the mixture until thin layer is obtained.
Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray. Cut the cookies using cutters in different shapes and designs and place them on the cookie sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes at 170 degree Celsius and cool on racks. Remove and decorate with royal icing.
