I always keep a slice of white bread in with my gingerbread men. It helps keep them soft. Just replace the bread as it dries out.

ok I tried the first one suggested. only doing a 1/2 batch at first to try
http://www.ehow.com/how_5126044_make...d-cookies.html

Nice dough to work with and the cookies came out thick and soft.
The only thing was they were bland in taste. Going to have to step up the spices in it. Will try the other one this weekend .

Aaahh, just what I was looking for. One thing, tho - I remember making these cookies before (not this recipe), and had a horrid time rolling them, as they were terribly sticky. Maybe I'll try again this year.
Wouldn't too much flour take away the taste, tho?? If that makes sense....

If you mean my recipe, then yes, they are sticky. You need to LIBERALLY flour the board and rolling pin. (and cutters!) The flour works into the cookie a bit, and no the flour doesn't mar the taste. Its important to keep the amount down as too much flour makes the cookies stiffer.
