So I thought it would be really fun to make the little League of Legends Ginger Bread Sight Wards. If you don’t play the game that’s fine, these are such cute cookies. Let’s get started! The things you will need, will be: 5 1/2 cups of regular flour, 2 sh-ticks of salted butter, 1 cup of molasses, 1/2 a cup of light brown sugar, 1/2 a cup of regular sugar, 1 egg, 1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1 1/2 tablespoon of ground ginger, 1/2 teaspoon of allspice, 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon of salt. And then for equipment we’re gonna be using a mixer, I’m using a hand mixer, but you can use whatever you’d like. 2 big mixing bowls, a cookie sheet with a pice of parchment paper on top. A sharp cutting knife, and then we’re gonna need 2 cookie cutters, the first 1 is a very small, it’s tear shaped, you don’t need this, just anything with a rounded edge will do and then a ginger bear cookie cutter! Then to decorate we’re gonna be needing red and green M&Ms and some white cookie icing. Now, let’s put it all together! Does this look familiar? I’m a ginger bread ward! This is kind of what they do in the game. The 1st thing that we’re gonna do is take 1 of your mixing bowls and we’re gonna mix together our flour, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, ginger, allspice and the clooooooves, and whisk them together. Now we’re gonna set this aside and mix together our other ingredients. Now in your 2nd big mixing bowl, we’re gonna cream together the butter and the sugar. We’ve got 2 of our butter sh-ticks and we’re gonna add both sugars, we’re gonna add the regular sugar, and the brown sugar. Then you’re gonna mix it up until it’s light and fluffy. Now that we’ve creamed together our butter and sugars, we are gonna add the egg and our molasses. Now get your blender again and we’re gonna mix until it’s well combined. Now that we have our 2 mixtures, we are gonna slowly add our dry ingredients into our wet mixture, I like to add it in 3 parts, so add some, mix it up, add some mix it up, add some, mix it up! Ohhhh it smells so good I can’t wait to eat these! Once you’ve got your dough ready, remember that this recipe… This is a lot of dough, this recipe serves about 2 dozen cookies so it’s really good for friends and family. And if you want to do less cookies, you can just cut the recipe in half, but… I like cookies!!!! So I’m gonna be making the whole thing! Alright, so what you’re gonna do is you’re gonna take a piece of cling wrap and, we’re gonna place our dough down, press it flat. And we’re gonna wrap it up tight and put it in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to chill. Now that the dough has chilled, we are gonna take a little bit of flour, sprinkle it on top of a flat surface so that your cookie dough doesn’t stick. I’ve divided the dough into 2 parts to make it a little bit easier to roll out. So I’m just gonna take the 1st ball of dough, put it in the middle, take your rolling pin and roll it out. This is how we roll-ohhh-ohhh! Now you’re gonna take the little bear cookie cutter, and we’re gonna cut out our shapes. Then you’re gonna remove the excess dough around the sides. Now you’re gonna take a spatula and we’re gonna move our cookies over to the cookie tray. Now we’re gonna shape these ginger bears to look like little wards! So the 1st thing I’m gonna do is take a little knife, and they have rounded ears, and I’m going to cut them to be pointed. Now we’ve got to shape the little arms, the little ward, his arms are a little bit up, so you’re just gonna re-shape them to be a little bit up. And if the cookie cracks a little bit in the armpit right here, that’s OK, because we’re gonna make a cut there next. So now, you’re gonna take your knife again and gonna cut… Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo! Now for the bottom you can leave it like this because this looks very similar to the video game, or if you want to get a little fancy, you can use that tear shaped cookie cutter, or anything with a rounded edge. And you go right here, right at the bottom, in between his 2 little legs, and then press the little feet, to round them. Now that our cookies are cut out, we are gonna put these in the freezer for 10 minutes to chill so that while they’re baking they will keep their shape. And we’re gonna put them in the oven for 350 degrees for 9 minutes. Once your cookies are done baking and they’ve had plenty of time to cool, now it’s time for my favorite part, time to decorate! The first thing that you’re gonna do is you’re gonna take a red and green M&M and we’re gonna cut them in half. Then take a little bit of your white cookie icing, I just put it in a plastic bag with a number 2 tip at the end to have a little bit more control. And, we’re just gonna put a little bit of frosting on the chocolate side of your M&M, and we’re gonna place it onto the cookie, right at the bottom. Then take 1 half of the green M&M, put a little frosting, and do the same. Now that we’ve got all of their little buttons on, now we’re gonna make their noses using same technique but you’re gonna use all red M&Ms, and then stick it right on his face. For the final step we’re gonna decorate with our white cookie icing, you’re gonna make an outline all around the Ginger Bread Ward, and add a little bit of details. Ta-da! Here are the homemade Ginger Bread Ward Cookies that we made today!
