Soft gingerbread cookies with a touch of molasses and the wonderful flavors of ground ginger and cloves covered in a brown sugar molasses icing and gingerbread men sprinkles
Christmas is fast approaching and with it more and more cookies are being baked. I mentioned yesterday I love giving away cookies and other sweet treats to friends and family and the holiday season is the most wonderful excuse to do so.
These gingerbread cookies I’ve made a couple of days ago. It was an overcast day and I knew if I shoot my photos they won’t turn out well. I left them in my office and went on with my day. Was surprised to find them the next day still soft, like the moment I pull them out of the oven, but more flavorful. Letting the cookies rest overnight gave the flavors plenty of time to develop.
I love the combination of the soft hint of brown sugar, the rich flavor and taste of the molasses and just a pinch to the tongue from the ground ginger and cloves.
I also have another surprise for you. With a handful of wonderful blogging friends we’re giving away a $500 gift card!!! Yes, $500 (five hundred dollars)
