This recipe is more like a gingersnaps recipe rather than a soft and/or chewy gingerbread people recipe. However, they were really tasty and worked well with cutouts. The icing recipe worked very well. We added food coloring and it was great! - 01 Jan 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These were wonderful. My son says they are nice and moist. The dough did spread when baking, my people looked very fat, but they tasted great. - 08 Dec 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
