Step 1: Wash hands with soap and water.

Step 4: Add flour mixture and mix on medium-low speed until completely incorporated.

Step 5: Divide dough in half, pat into 2 discs about ½-inch thick, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Wash hands after handling raw dough.

Step 6: Preheat to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

Step 7: Remove dough from refrigerator and let sit for 10 minutes. Roll out 1 disc of dough between 2 pieces of parchment paper until ¼-inch thick. Cut out gingerbread shapes with cookie cutters and arrange about 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Wash hands after handling raw dough.
