  6. I love baking cookies at Christmas time. I usually make Chocolate Crinkles, which is always a hit. I’ve tried doing rolled out dough cookies but for some reason I can never get it right! Gotta keep practicing I guess! 🙂

    I haven’t had gingerbread biscuits since my grandmother passed. My mouth is water, and I think it’s about time I make these gems. Thanks for the recipe – and the reminder. 🙂

  14. These look yummy. I love gingerbread cookies at Christmas time and used to make them all the time since I was a child. Now in Japan, I don’t have all the tools to make gingerbread men, so I make regular round soft ginger cookies. They do job just as well 😉
