Gingerbread Cookies: A Christmas Tradition

Fall, Winter: Gingerbread cookies, just the sound of it makes my mouth water. The smell of ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon brings me back to the days of making them with my grandma. This was a fun tradition that involved little work and a lot of love. The best part of making gingerbread “people” is the decorating. You can use royal icing for the clothes and just about any small candy for the details. Why not spend some time with the family and bake a batch for the family Christmas party, office party or as hostess gifts. The exciting part is the shape and design is only limited to your imagination. If you are not into making people then any cookie cutter shape will work. Stars, angels, candy canes, the sky is the limit and the memories will be treasured for years to come.
