Kayte from Grandma's Kitchen Table chose this month's MSCupcake -- gingerbread cupcakes -- which was an easy recipe to put together. I cut the recipe in half and came out with 8. The one thing I didnt like about the recipe was all the butter in it, even at half recipe, 1.5 sticks was used. I should have went with my gut and just used 1 stick of butter because out of the oven, these were oily. The taste was sort of there but they were too dense.... not fluffy at all.
I didnt even bother with the cookies cutouts that were supposed to go on top. Instead of vanilla frosting, I used some cream cheese frosting that I had. Sorry to say but this was a disappointing recipe from Martha. I hope the other MSC Bakers had better luck than me.
