Christmas time is here and so is all those holiday cookies! We love cookies in this house…especially when you can use cookie cutters. I normally go with our sugar cookie recipe, but wanted to go another route this past weekend: gingerbread.
Gingerbread cookies can be difficult for some kids to love on taste alone. Their ‘spicy’ taste is off setting for most. This recipe was perfect for my kids, giving both a soft and not-so-spicy cookie. I would say this gingerbread cookie is like taking a shortbread cookie and mixing it with a gingerbread cookie. Of course my daughter further approved our buttercream frosting on top 😉
Another great thing about these cookies is the fact you can freeze them! I made a big batch and froze half of them for closer to Christmas. These cookies freeze well: cook, cool and freeze for up to 6 weeks. Make sure to freeze the cookies prior to frosting them. The cookie dough can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
I hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as we did! Merry Christmas too all!
