GingerBread Men Cookies - Eggless Ginger Bread Man cookies - Cookies recipe

I wanted to try this Gingerbread man cookie for quite sometime. But these kind of spiced cookies are not my family's favourite. Also the Ingredients list scares me. I bought a few Christmas cookie cutters last year and they were lying in the shelf. After hearing the benefits of molasses I decided to buy it for making a few dishes. I decided to try out the gingerbread men cookies but with whole wheat. It came out pretty good. Do try out and you can decorate it to your own imagination. Video for icing was taken twice that's why the stills and video was diff.

Whole wheat flour - 1 cup (125 g)

Brown sugar - 1/4 cup or 50g
