Measure Up! Gingerbread Recipe

Here is a Gingerbread recipe that you can make with your kids. The amounts are using the Discovery Toys Measure Up! Cups and the spoons from the Measure Up! Pots & Spoons set and then in case you don’t have those items yet I’ve included the regular measurements in parentheses as well:

#9 cup Butter (3/4c)
#12 cup Sugar (1c)
1 egg, slightly beaten
#3 cup Molasses (1/4c)
5 -#6 cups Flour (2 1/2c)
#8 spoon Baking soda (2 tsp.)
#1 spoon Salt (1/4 tsp.)
#4 spoon Cinnamon (1 tsp.)
#4 spoon Ginger (1 tsp.)

Cream butter and sugar. Beat in the egg and molasses. Sift the dry ingredients and mix with the wet ingredients. Chill the dough. Roll the dough on a lightly floured board to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut out the gingerbread men shapes. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes.
