XMAS GINGERBREAD MEN

Happy Thursday peeps!

I LOVE GINGERBREAD! They are my favourite Christmas cookies. Everytime I bake them it just makes the whole house smell incredibly festive and delicious. Yum Yum!

To me, the perfect gingerbread has to have a golden colour, a slight crunch outside and a soft chewy inside. Sometimes it’s so hard to find a perfect recipe to make a 5 star gingerbread but I think I found the right one.

The dough is so firm and nice to work with and the smell of it is so delightful smelling that it will get you in the festive spirit in no time.
