Homemade Gingerbread Houses (AKA the Best Frosting Ever)
- 3 egg whites at room temperature
- ½ teaspoon of cream of tarter
- 1 pound of powdered sugar
- ½ cup oil
- 1 egg
- ⅔ cup molasses
- ⅓ cup packed brown sugar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 Tbs baking powder
- 1 teaspoon ginger
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ⅛ teaspoon cloves
- 2 ¾ - 3 cups flour
Mix all ingredients together and then chill for two hours. Place dough onto a cookie sheet, then roll it out as smooth as possible. Also add a sprinkle of flour to the top. Cut the raw dough into your house shapes (without removing any dough from the pan). Create and use a paper pattern for best results. Bake at 300 degrees for 15 minutes. Then, cut the dough again and remove the edges. Bake for another 10 minutes. Allow pieces to cool before assembling.
These houses always turn out so cute! So if you don't have a frosting recipe you love, I highly recommend this one!
Happy Gingerbread House Making!!!
