How do I make it ?
Combine flour, spices and baking powder. Beat cream cheese, butter, sugar, molasses and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until blended. Gradually add flour mixture, mixing well after each addition.
Divide dough in half; flatten each into disk. Wrap individually in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 1 hour.
Heat oven to 350ºF. Roll out 1 disk on lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into 18 gingerbread-man shapes, using 5-inch cookie cutter and rerolling scraps as necessary. Place, 1 inch apart, on parchment-covered baking sheets. Repeat with remaining dough.
Bake 12 to 15 min. or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 1 min. Remove to wire racks; cool completely. Decorate with icing as desired.
Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Prepare using your favourite colour(s) of decorating icing.
Prepare dough and flatten into disks as directed. Wrap tightly, then freeze up to 1 month. Thaw in refrigerator overnight before rolling out and baking as directed.
For spicier cookies, double the measures of the ground ginger and cloves to instead use 2 tsp. ginger and 1 tsp. cloves.
