A great Ginger Horse Cookie inspired by my love of cookies and my love for my horse Ginger.
Course: Dessert, Holidays
Cuisine: American
Author: recipe from Paula Deen


For the Icing:

  • I used premade icing I got at the Mixed Conference. It's from Duff Goldman's line of products


  • In your stand mixer cream the sugar and butter on low-speed till well combined.
  • Now add the eggs and the molasses,mix until well combined.
  • Now sift the flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
  • Add your dry ingredients to the butter mixture. Combine using a wooden spoon or other strong utensil.
  • Now take your dough and wrap it in plastic wrap. Stick it in the fridge for about an hour.
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line your cookie sheets with parchment paper, this stuff rocks for cookies.
  • Let the dough sit at room temperature for about 15 to 30 minutes, it should be pliable and easy to manipulate.
  • Grab about 1/4 of your dough and roll onto a floured board. It should be about 1/8 inch thick. Now press your horse cookie cutter into the dough. Transfer the cutout to the cookie sheets, and repeat.
  • You can reuse scraps. Waste not, want not!
  • Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, till golden. Transfer to your wire racks to let cool.
  • Once cool get your creativity going and make fun stuff on the cookies. Hope you are better at it than I am.
  • Allow icing to dry.
  • Serve with a big old "I love horses" smile.
  • *you can use a straw to cut out a hole at the top of each cookie, then tie a ribbon to them and hang them on your tree*
