Gingerbread is something that I have acquired a taste for over the years. I have made many different recipes over the years and I find that they are sometimes quite heavy in texture and overloaded with spices.
This recipe doesn’t have those components. It’s lighter on the spices and it has a buttery texture. I think it will be reappearing on our Christmas Treat table year after year. They also last up to ten days if stored in an air tight container.
I have attached a Royal icing recipe for those of you who wish to decorate your cookies with it. I like them naked. The simpler the better for me.
