It seems like for the past 5 years I have been on the search for the perfect Gingerbread men recipe. The first year that my friend and I made Gingerbread men it was hardly a gingerbread cookie, but more of a sugar cookie with some spices thrown in – and it was amazing. Neither of us really had the palate for gingerbread frankly, it was just too strong. Over the years, we have tried new recipes and havent been huge fans, until this year.
I think it was a may have been that my tastes changed to now enjoy deep, strong flavored foods (like my new affinity for dark chocolate which I could never get myself to like before) but this year these were full on Gingerbread cookies, and I really liked them!
I got into the spirit this year with personalization of the packaging for the food that I made. I put a label on the lid of my Caramel Sauce, and figured I should keep it up with my Gingerbread Men too. Normally we just put them in little baggies and tie it with a string. This year I got crafty and made my own bag toppers! I think they turned out absolutely amazing 🙂
I hope you all have an amazing Christmas & Hanukkah with your families. Love you all
