Julian’s Gingerbread Cookies: A Holiday Season Recipe


The holiday season is prime time for sweets and treats. As such, we thought it’d be a great idea to highlight a recipe from AGI Marketing’s very own baking expert, Julian Avila! Gingerbread cookies are instantly recognizable, and their delicious crunch and Christmas-time taste are the perfect representation for this time of year. Welcome the Holiday season into your home by baking these delectable treats!


  • 3 Cups Flour (I use Unbleached Flour)
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 3/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Ginger
  • 1 3/4 Teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Cloves
  • 6 Tablespoons Butter
  • 3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Egg (Large)
  • 1/2 Cup Molasses
  • 2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract


  1. Mix Flour, Soda, Powder, Salt, Ginger, Cinnamon & Cloves in one bowl
  2. In another bowl (I use my KitchenAid) Mix Butter, Brown Sugar, Egg, Molasses & Vanilla
  3. Add dry ingredients and continue to mix until blended
  4. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and let sit for 3-4 hours (cut dough in half)
  5. Preheat oven to 375
  6. Roll dough out on flour surfaced & use rolling pin until dough is about 1/4 inches (you can use more flour if needed to avoid sticking)
  7. Use gingerbread cookie cutter and place on the cooking tray with parchment paper
  8. Bake 8-10 minutes (keep any eyes after the first batch because they will cook faster and prevent burning)
  9. Let them cool and you can use preferred icing to decorate or sprinkle with powdered sugar
  10. Enjoy!
