Instructions
Step 1
  1. Cream together the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Meanwhile, mix flour, ginger, cinnamon, baking soda, nutmeg and salt in a large bowl and set aside. Add molasses, egg and vanilla to the creamed mixture on a moderate speed until well mixed. Gradually beat in the flour mixture on low speed until well mixed. Press the dough into a thick flat disk and wrap in plastic wrap for at least 4 hours or overnight.
Step 2
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 and roll out the dough to 1/4-inch thickness on a lightly floured work surface. Cut the dough into gingerbread men shapes with a 5-inch cookie cutter. Place the shapes 1-inch apart on lightly greased cookie sheets.
Step 3
  1. Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges of the cookies are set and just begin to brown, no more. Cool on baking sheets 1-2 minutes before removing. Cool completely on wire racks and decorate as desired.
