Author's Notes

It takes about 2-3 batches of the icing to frost one regular house. To make the house, I look at book designs, I copy my pattern, then cut the pattern out, make the dough and roll out and cut out pieces: 2 roof sides, back, front, 2 sides. Then bake the dough, collect my candy, make a batch of icing and assemble.

Directions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Mix together All-Purpose Flour (5 1/2 cup), Baking Soda (1 teaspoon), Salt (1 teaspoon), Ground Nutmeg (1 teaspoon), Ground Cloves (1 teaspoon), Ground Cinnamon (2 teaspoon), and Ground Ginger (2 teaspoon).
Step 2
Melt Butter (1 cup) in a small saucepot over low heat, then add Granulated Sugar (1 cup) and Blackstrap Molasses (1 1/4 cup). Stir until combined then turn off the heat.
Step 3
Once the mixture has cooled, add the Large Egg (2). Stir until combined and add to the dry flour mixture.
Step 4
Mix in a standing mixer with the paddle attachment until a ball forms. Wrap in 2 individual packages, place in the refrigerate for one hour.
Step 5
Roll out on a flour dusted parchment paper.
Step 6
Cut out into desired shapes.
Step 7
Baking depends on if they are for eating or building. For just eating, bake about 15 minutes at 325 degrees F (160 degrees C). If you want to build a house, you'll need to bake them for 25 minutes for a harder cookie.
Step 8
To make the icing, place Meringue Powder (3 tablespoon), Powdered Confectioners Sugar (1 package) and Water (6 tablespoon) in a standing mixer with whisk attachment and beat for about 12 minutes, until light and fluffy.
Step 9
Decorate and enjoy!
