These cookies are gingerbread-y and chewy and the royal icing makes them extra special. 🙂
Do you have a favorite gingerbread cookie recipe? If you don’t, then give this one a try.
And don’t be afraid to experiment with other cutout shapes… why limit yourself to just gingerbread (wo)men? Try some stockings, stars, candy canes, Christmas trees, bells, angels…
And you can get really creative with your royal icing by mixing colors in. I’m thinking about that green Christmas tree and red candy canes. Royal icing requires more color than a buttercream frosting does so be sure to have plenty of concentrated icing color on hand.
These Gingerbread Snowflake Cookies were featured in the November 2014 issue of the magazine.
