    How about you spare me the chit chat? Make the dang cookies already! What do you think this is? A public access daytime talk show?

  • Hi there I’m a little late but I have a question. Can I replace molasses with honey????
    PS:I made your chocolate chip cookies and they were great

  • Hello everyone, I’m Argentinian and i want to make this to my friend for his birthday, who lived in Pennsylvania his entire childhood.
    I want to know if this cookies have that particular flavor
    He saids is so melancholic that smell and flavor
    Sorry for the bad english

  • I used molasses but I used butter rather shortening and the color is a lot darker, and is it suppose to smell mostly like molasses when I’m done mixing?

  • I baked these cookies this morning and just can’t believe how good they are and so easy to make them. It is no fail recipe. I was looking for a perfect ginger cookie recipe and here it is. They look so professional just like store bought but they taste better than store bought. I just love them. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe.

  • I love soft ginger cookies! I will make theses. I love all the recipes on your channel. I have made several & they all are GREAT. Thank You and keep them coming. ��������������❤️

  • I doubled this recipe and it was so fun and easy. We made two gingerbread houses and two dozen cookies. My family really enjoyed this recipe, it was great! The only problem for the gingerbread house was that recipe was made for a softer cookie so the roof caved in. I probably should have just baked the house a little longer and maybe at a lower temp. Ro please give advice on how to tweak your recipe to make a homemade gingerbread house please.

  • I followed the recipe exactly (except I used butter instead), and my cookies stayed flat:( it tastes good but doesn’t look like cookies. HELP

  • Hi, I know they’re probably best eaten on the same day, but do these store well if made a few days in advance for a party, or will they go limp?

  • how ’bout some “behind the scenes”? As in, why’d you yoink the original video of this title? What was the fatal flaw cutie? Enquiring minds want to know

  • why did you turn off the comments for a while? did you need a vacation? �� i don’t blame you. out of all youtube channels you are the best at responding to the viewer questions but it has to take its toll and get overwhelming sometimes

  • HI I have a question: if my electric oven only has 2 shelf which is top and bottom, so should I place on the top or bottom to prevent the cookie from getting burn because I don’t have a middle shelf?

  • I just saw this today and decided to try right away, I must say I’m very impressed with the outcome. thank you very much for the post. One new subscriber.

  • I tried that but the house ended up ruined. Walls fallen, roofs broken. So I decided to just broke the pieces and arranged it to look like a storm destroyed it. Then I proceeded to decorate it. Ended up great!

  • Looks delish! I will have to make some for my husband. He loves ginger cookies, especially soft ones! Thanks so much for the recipe!

    THANKS TO YOU ALL MY COOKIES CAME OUT BURNT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • i recommend this recipe! we made it with my daughter and turns out really nice, wet though but i keep adding flour and turns out really nice.

  • I think better when not add the molasses, its give the taste too bad, and I throw all my biscuits no body like it because the taste of molasses!:”(

  • Yum YUm.. Made them before, i recall 12 years ago one put its handout to myself and asked… “Do you feel the power?”
    {Before going in the oven}
    But as the poser states.. Stay at home chef..
    Mushrooms are good.

  • Gingerbread always tastes good, but if you want to spice it up try adding a dash of cinnamon or even pepper! I have even tried a little hot sauce in the past and it gave it a nice little zest! Lemon juice gives it a kick and an amazing aroma!  you dont always have to eat them!

  • I just made these cookies today and they came out great. I made sure to put them in the freezer while the oven was heating to make sure they would keep their shape. Thankyou very much. Now gonna go ahead and make the icing ����

  • Hi! I wanted to make also this gingerbread cookies for Christmas,but the problem is,that I can’t find anywhere molasses,so can I use something else, or it must be molasses.:)

  • I tried out this recipe, except I doubled the amount of spices since I saw some people here saying it wasn’t strong enough. And let me say, it is amazing! Thank you for this wonderful recipe!:)

  • I have never had gingerbread cookies in my life while I was growing up so this year I’m gonna be 17 by the time Christmas is here and I am determined to have a gingerbread cookie

  • They start baking at 3:04
    Then they start talking at 3:23 so skip to 3:35
    Then they start talking again at 4:00, so you have to skip to 4:46
    Then they talk again at 5:19, skip to 5:26
    Then they start talking againnn at 5:29, so now skip to 6:00
    Then they start talking at 6:19, so skip to 6:31 then they talk at 6:33, skip to 7:27 (but keep in mind, Ro doesn’t say to mix, they just carry on talking, so just mix before skipping to 7:27)
    Then, they talk at 7:35 so skip to 7:59, but then they talk again after that 8:10 so skip to 9:31
    Then they start at 9:47, skip to 9:54
    Then, they start again at 10:57 so skip to 11:07
    Then they talk again at 11:18, skip to 11:38
    Then at 12:20, they talk again so skip to 13:00

    There are also obviously some small moments when they talk for like 5-10 seconds but I didn’t include that coz the list would be rlly long and also, I might have cut out some parts, sorry

    No hate to ro but if you do the math, the video would’ve been 6 minutes (or less) without the chattering
    Love you Ro ��

  • I did try our yr recipe today but was disappointed that my cookies came out flatter than your delicious looking plump cookies. Where could I have gone wrong. They tasted really good, my husband loved them. My only addition was a cup of crystalized ginger pieces to the batter. Thank you for your recipe.

  • Stopped watching…. they are toooo noisy talking over one another all the time… I just wanted a recipe for cookies… Not a everyone fighting for attention… I’m out of here sorry.

  • i know im commenting this a year later but geez some of you people are really mean in the comments. shame ����just enjoy the video and stop complaining about Ro’s friends:)

  • Sorry, I cannot watch this. You are grown ups…QUIT TALKING LIKE 3 YEAR OLDS. The little girl voices are obnoxious and phony..that includes the guy. ��

  • List of ingredients is in the video description, but for those looking to save time:
    In one bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar. Add molasses and egg; mix.
    In a separate bowl, mix all other dry ingredients.
    Add half of dry ingredients with wet ingredients; mix. Add the rest of the dry ingredients; mix.
    Pack dough into 3 separate pieces, wrap each separately and tightly in plastic wrap.
    Leave in fridge for 3 hours to chill.
    Roll out dough to 1/4 inch thick. Cut out cookie shapes.
    Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.

  • I just made the dough and it looks too wet. Was the flour measured scooping it out with a measuring cup or spooned in to the measuring cup?

  • There is too many strong personalities in this video. I tried to watch it but the yelling and constant battle to get words in is too much.

  • How do you make royal icing without eggs and meringue powder, I just heard that California bands meringue powder so you can’t buy or order it anywhere and I need to make royal icing

  • Your recipes are awesome.Can I bake in two or three batches as I don’t have a big oven?also any substitute of molasses,it is not available in my area.

  • I’ve just tried your recipe and the biscuits were fine but very sweet. Is it possible to cut back on the sugar or molasses without spoiling the end results?

  • The best gingerbread cookies I have ever made, but I don’t like this video. I wish it was just Ro demonstrating. I wanted to follow along with the recipe but I had to continuously skip through the chatter while making these cookies! And hard to do while holding a hand mixer

  • Love making these cookies every year Ro!!! They are amazing!!!! Is there a good. substitute for the egg in the cookies besides egg replacer?

  • Hey why don’t you revisit the vegan wacky cake recipe with baking powder with a 6 inch pan? It was great. Also please give measurements in gms.

  • has anyone actually made these?! I have all the ingredients set and ready to go.. but I wanted to come to the Comments for some tips and reviews and I find.. NOTHING ��

  • I didn’t work with half of the dough right away and it got super rock hard. So I warmed it back up in the microwave but it got all crumbly, I didn’t know how to fix it. Any suggestions, if it happens again? So I’m gonna try again and this time work with all the dough right away.

  • I made these last year and they were AMAZING!!! I can’t wait to make them again this year for Christmas�� This really is the BEST gingerbread cookie recipe and they are so fun to make!!��❤️

  • BEST

    Seriously….. I made half a batch and it was AMAZING. The only thing that made it hard for me was measuring half of 3/4 of a cup of Molasses, but it was awesome.

    I would reccomend including half teaspoon of vanilla extract, I did that and it turned out delicious.

    Awesome job! I love your videos!

  • Hi, I liked your recipe a lot. I do have a question about the color of your dough. Your dough seems to me much less darker than most everyone else. Is there a reason for that? I’ve never made gingerbread cookies but I’m going to give it a shot so I’m searching for the best recipe and the easiest.

  • Awesome cookies. Rather everything you do are really cool. Gotta try definetly. I think if anyone gives you a thumbs down must be a moron or thinks they know everything better or just dont know ��������. All the best and cheers from Mumbai, Delilah

  • Step by Step video lessons for you to make a perfect honey bread that will bring you a lot of profit, with a perfect and tasty dough it will become a reference in your city in honey bread.

  • I’ve never had a soft gingerbread anything. It’s always been crunchy. But all these recipes have been for soft cookies lol so I’ll have to try it.

  • Best gingerbread cookie recipe EVER. Made them last year and will be making them again tomorrow morning. Thank you for sharing and Merry Christmas! xo

  • Do you have a Email address so that I can Show you the Picture of this Big.Blob that’s Supposed to be Your Gingerbread Cookie Recipe/Dough But looks like a Big.Blob!!! Of Chocolate Cake Icing and!!! I Followed your Step.By.Step Ingredients Ugh!! ��‍♀️ What Am I Doing WRONG??? #ImFrustradedWithMyself��‍♀️

  • Not sure why but mine came out like cardboard. Followed the recipe exactly & fresh from the oven they were very dense. Not soft at all��

  • When I converted the measurements to grams it said 250g of black treacle/molasses but it’s too much, and I had to add loads more flour to make it a dough, which was very dark compared to hers. I currently have tons of treacle and clove biscuits, not so gingerbread ����

  • My dad is loving these super soft gingerbread cookies from World Market and I remembered you had a soft gingerbread recipe! I think I’ll make these a tad closer to Christmas! But I can’t wait to make these!

  • I remember when I was younger, I bit a peice of raw ginger and I was genuinely confused as to why it didn’t taste like a ginger bread cookie

  • Can I ask you a favor? Can you put the quantities in grams? I’ve tried the recipe but the dough was extremely sticky and so soft that when I tried to lift the cookies they lost their shape. I guess the problem is too much molasse.:-(

  • I will def.. use this recipe. but video is full of high tones. it is hard to listen.. all best guys.. hope my cookies turn well according to this recipe..and incredible good idea to creat make up line in that design.. well done

  • I know this is old but followed the recipe and dough was way to sticky put in fridge for an extra he could not even role out was so sticky even with flour down so dissapointed

  • I LOVE your videos. Do you have your measurements in grams please? especially butter, flour and sugar. In South Africa we have treacle sugar which is brown sugar with molasses so that works great.

  • Just tried these out. I probably rolled them out a bit thinner than recommended, but I did a shorter cook time as well. End result tasted pretty good!

  • Hi, thank you for showing such a detailed and easy method of ginger cookies. I followed it completely except one ingredient, I used soft brown sugar instead of white sugar. The dough was rather smooth and not the one like yours. I scooped them out on the tray and now they’ve become the size of tortilla’s in the oven while baking. Was brown sugar a mistake?! Where did I go wrong? So upset right now ��

  • Yes, you’ve got it, Zoe Fox. It’s 1 cup of shortening, melted and then slightly cooled. Here’s a link to the original recipe so you may review all the ingredient amounts:

    8)1/2 a tablespoon of self-control
    9)3/4 of a teaspoon of sadness

  • ( I know this is unrelated but ANYWAY)
    Sad story:
    I lost all my grand parents in this order:
    1. Grandma ( before my birth )
    2. My other grandma ( 8 months )
    3. Grandpa ( 4 years old )
    4. My other grandpa ( 11 years old )
    I’m 21 now and I always dream what having a grandma feels like��
