I'm going to show you how to make fun delicious gingerbread men. For our gingerbread men, the first thing I'm going to tell you about what ingredients you'll need. First, you're going to need flour, about five cups. You'll also need to have white granulated sugar, a little bit of salt, we're going to use one cup of shortening for our fat, one egg, some spices including cloves, cinnamon and ginger. We'll need molasses, and little bit of vinegar and for leavening we'll be using baking soda instead of baking powder. Because of the baking soda, that's partially we're using the vinegar because you need that acid in order to interact with the soda. So for the molasses, if you don't like the taste of molasses or you have problems with the smell of it, then you can also substitute dark corn syrup. But really for the full taste of the gingerbread men and that lovely spicy gingerbread taste, you'll want to use molasses.
