Gingerbread cookies are a favourite when it comes to holiday cookie recipes. Those cute little gingerbread men with their happy faces painted on with sweet icing are the perfect Christmas treat to make for holiday gatherings, bake sales or as gifts. The spicy flavour of ginger mixed with the sweet taste of sugar and the syrupy molasses all combine together to create the most deliciously soft cookies. This is one of the dessert recipes from our Grandmother's collection that we love to make, and we're sure you'll enjoy it as much as we do. Get your kids involved in the baking process making these homemade cookies too, and it can be a fun filled activity for the whole family to enjoy. Once those little men are done baking, every one can have a chance to decorate their own gingerbread men which is so much fun. Think of different colours of icing and different sprinkles and edible decorations you can use for your own gingerbread men.***
