  • Summary

    Just as setting out milk and cookies will appease a jolly elf, these gingerbread critters are sure to tame ornery beasts. Lemony royal icing cloaks the cookies with spider web and bat disguises. Use extra icing to give the bats staring eyes and to make chubby spiders.

    Ingredients

    • 6 cups all-purpose flour (sifted, then measured), plus more for dusting
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 8 ounces (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
    • 1 cup packed dark-brown sugar
    • 4 teaspoons ground ginger
    • 4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cloves
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1 1/2 cups unsulfured molasses
    • Royal Icing
