  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • For the Gingerbread Bars
  • ½ cup softened butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup molasses
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • For the Glaze
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-3 tablespoons milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla


Preheat the oven to 350 F. In a large bowl cream together the butter and brown sugar, beat in the molasses and egg. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and nutmeg in a separate bowl. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir until well combined.
Press into the bottom of a greased 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Bake for 14-16 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out with a few crumbs. Let cool completely before glazing.
To make the glaze, mix together the powdered sugar, vanilla and enough of the milk to make a smooth consistency that is easy to drizzle. Drizzle onto cooled bars. Cut into squares.
