Step 5: Roll It Out!
Preheat the oven to 350° and lightly grease your cookie sheets. Roll the dough out on a parchment and floured surface to 1/4 inch thickness. (The parchment is very important or the dough will stick to your counter-top).
Step 6: Cookie Cut It Up!
Use a gingerbread man cookie cutter to cut out your gingerbread men.
Step 7: Bake Them!
Bake the gingerbread men for 8 minutes. If you are going to use the cookies as a decoration, punch a hole in the top before cooking with the end of a straw.
Step 8: Let Them Cool, Decorate and Gobble Them Up!
Remove the cookies from the oven, place on a cooling rack and let them cool. Then decorate as you desire! We used a vegan icing made from 4 cups of powdered sugar, 1/4 cup water and a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
