Description

When the holiday season rolls around and you're dreaming about gingerbread cookies, look no further. These crisp treats will fill your kitchen and cookie jar with the heady aroma and flavor of molasses and sweet spices. We've included an easy royal icing, though if you're short on time you can use tubes of purchased icing instead. If you go the royal icing route, gather decorating tips and bags, and gel food coloring before you get started. You can find them at a craft store or cooking store, or online. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Saura Kline.

    Easy to make, great texture for rolling. Not as spicy as I normally like, but perfect for small children to cut and eat! It was a real winner when they asked to make gingerbread cookies for Santa. 😊
