Mimi's Gingerbread Men

I have made these since I was in high school (a long time ago). I found the recipe in a magazine, maybe Better Homes and Gardens, and tried them. They were so good. They still are. My family loves Gingerbread Men. If you don't roll these too thin and if you don't overbake them, they will be soft and wonderful. They have good flavor. One hint on the cutter--choose one that has sort of fat arms and legs and not one with spindly extremities because they will get crispy before the body is done. I like soft "gingies". Another cutter that I use is a teddy bear. Then I call them "Ginger Bears".
