Bread Mix

It’s easy to make gingerbread people — just make sure they don’t run away! Made with Pamela’s Bread Mix.

  • 3-1/2 cups Pamela’s Bread Mix
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup molasses
  • 12 TBSP butter or margarine, chilled
  • 1 TBSP ground ginger
  • 1 TBSP ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 2 TBSP milk

Preheat oven to 350°. Use HEAVY DUTY STAND MIXER and paddle. In mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients (you will not use the yeast packet included in the small bag of Bread Mix). Add butter and mix well. Add molasses and milk, mix to combine thoroughly.

Divide dough and roll to 1/4 inch between two layers of parchment paper. Freeze for 15 minutes. Remove top sheet of each and cut out cookies and remove excess dough. Bake on parchment on cookie sheet for 10-12 minutes until edges begin to brown for soft cookies.

For crispy cookies, roll thinner to 1/8th inch and bake for 14 to18 minutes. Scraps can be rolled and cookies cut out again.

We loved this I used organic palm oil in place of dairy and this came out fantastic! The adults ate more than the kids.

Our family has been using this recipe for many years now. We love to make mini gingerbread men from it! They are the perfect size for snacking at Christmas. We also love making the normal size gingerbread men. Easy to follow recipe and they turn out great!

Can this recipe be made using Pamela's Baking and Pancake Mix instead of the bread mix?

    • Hi Cara, This would most likely not work with the Baking & Pancake Mix because of the leavening in the mix -- they would spread and not hold their shape. We do not have a recipe at this time for Gingerbread Cookies using the Baking & Pancake Mix, but thank you for the suggestion -- we will work on that one!

I want to make this recipe but don't know if I should include the yeast packet that is in the Bread Mix or not. I noticed the recipe does not include eggs. Please advise me.

    • Hi Liz, You do not need to use the yeast packet (we updated the recipe to state this - thank you) and there are no eggs called for in the recipe.

Fantastic. These are exactly like a cookie should be. Crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. I followed the recipe to the letter with exactly 12 TBSP of butter. They do spread quite a bit so definitely leave a good amount of space between each cookie.

Freeze, freeze, freeze the dough. Not good for detailed cuts unless you remove cut dough from parchment and place onto another parchment before baking by carefully using offset spatula to lift cut dough. Would work great for houses but takes more effort if you want cut outs. And don't cut too close together if you leave the cut outs on the original parchment. It will be very hard to lift excess dough without damaging the cut outs. Taste and texture is great. Just a little complicated if you want detailed cookie shapes.

Worst recipe! They smelled and tasted good but spread in the oven. The dough was sticky and difficult to use. I would not recommend-expensive and a waste of time.

I have used this recipe for several years. We love to make gingerbread houses with it. I just roll it flat onto parchment paper in a large cookie sheet and bake. We then trace our pattern on the top and slice around it immediately after removing it from the oven. Be sure to cool for several hours before removing it from the tray, though. Happy holidays!

Regarding the butter, is it supposed to be cubed?

I wonder if anyone at Pamela's actually tested this recipe?

This recipe does not make gingerbread cookies as per the accompanying picture.

I had to throw away an entire batch.

TWEAK IT: 8 TBSP instead of 12.

Impossible to use cookie cutters with the original or tweaked recipe but tweaked will yield a great, thick gingerbread sheet that can be sliced into bars.

    • HI Phoebe - All of our recipes are tested by Pamela and her test bakers to ensure they work. That being said, everyone bakes differently and a lot of factors come into play for the end result. Sometimes you may choose to tweak a recipe to suit your personal tastes. Denise, Customer Service
