Pretty sure when it comes to Christmas baking, you can’t NOT make gingerbread cookies.
Cut them out with the classic gingerbread man (or woman), candy canes, trees and you are sure to put yourself in the Christmas spirit.
I am terrible at decorating and if you aren’t feeling confident with it either, its totally fine.
A nude gingerbread tastes just as good as a clothed one!
My favorite gingerbread recipe is by Ali at Gimme Some Oven. She has SO many good recipes. If you haven’t checked out her site yet, GET ON IT.
You can make these cookies soft or crispy and load up on all the warm spices like cinnamon and nutmeg.
Ali adds in a little orange zest to the dough which is total genius. It lifts up the cookie with a beautiful citrusy scent and taste as a finishing note.
Decorate them with icing or sprinkles, or let them run around in their birthday suits. Try dipping the cookies into some hot chocolate or milk!
Either way, you can’t go wrong.
Happy Baking Friends!
