It is baking time for Christmas!!! Mandy and I baked a few batches of Gingerbread Man cookies few days ago to try out a few different gingerbread cookie recipes. We finally settled on the adapted recipe from Martha Stewart which my kids and I love the most.
For years, I have been wishing to bake my own Gingerbread Man cookies, I am glad that I am able to accomplish it this year. With the help from Mandy, I have baked my first ever gingerbread cookies and decorated royal icing on them!!! The feeling in getting the icing done without practicing ahead is simply thrilling, I thought I would fail but they turned out pleasing (not perfect though). Not only that, I feel the joy when seeing my kids’ first bites on the cookies they have never tried before, and, feel overjoyed when they keep asking for it, wow… 100% baking satisfaction. The Gingerbread Man cookies have gone way too fast and I will need to bake a few more batches again very soon. I truly enjoy the process because I am devoted to bake for my loved ones.
I hope you will try out this recipe too.
