recipe

You will only need half the recipe for the cheesecake; use the remaining dough to make cookie cutouts (see variation) or reserve it for another use; it will freeze up to one month. To make a honey gingerbread variation (as pictured on top of the cheesecake), replace 1/2 cup of the molasses with 1/2 cup honey, and substitute granulated sugar for the brown sugar.

recipe

The cookie cutters for these cookies are available at downtowndough.com (from $5.50 each). To make the Woodlands Gingerbread House, use one batch of this dough to make the walls, and one batch of the Boiled Gingerbread dough to make the roof and chimneys. Get the gingerbread house template here.
