SUPER SECRET GINGER COOKIES FOR SANTA OR YOU
Over the past few days the alarms have sounded more than a few times as friends have asked for some of my specialty cookie recipes. I’ve not been too prone to share the old family cookies, but if I don’t who will? So herewith… my super secret ginger cookies.
And now since most of the old folks have left our earthly home, I think its time to share some goodies.. Yesterday was one of those days, and my dear friend Audrey needed some quick and easy cookies to bring for a party at her daughter’s gymnastics class party today. I’d just made a few dozen of these lovelies and the recipe is so simple I’ll share it here too. Audrey said she thought she’d been given the holy grail of cookie recipes..but truthfully, this one was passed on to me by my bestest friend Sissy’s, Aunt Sis.
We must have been 8th or 9th graders and it somehow got into our minds to make gingerbread houses. Hours later and covered in royal icing, our houses appeared for all to see (I wish I had a picture). More than slightly lopsided, we thought they were beautiful! The recipe below can be used for making gingerbread houses (you’ll have to make your own template or download this one from Martha Stewart .
Over the years, I’ve learned some things about baking, burned my share of cookies and tweaked some recipes to get the results I want, so here goes..
There are several variations in the preparation below..read through carefully. If I confused you anywhere, feel free to let me know through my contact page, I’ll be happy to help. The picture above is the last variation..my favorite and by far the easiest!Print
