  1. I’m confused. In the official recipe step 4 is to take the dough and roll it into a ball.
    Step 5 is using gingerbread cutters, cut out into shapes.

    In the illustrated recipe, after mixing the dough, you take the mixture out, roll it and cut shapes out of it. No dough ball mentioned.
    Please clarify.
    Thanks.
