I am counting down to Christmas… less than a week to go… HO-HO-HO!!! I was so busy with all the Christmas crafts, decorations, and shopping, plus planning for a short weekend getaway with family [actually, I am in Singapore now]. I ran out of time to bake (except the Gingerbread man cookies we baked last week), glad that Mandy came in to bake some Giant Ginger Snap Cookies to share with us. I did the decoration part though, stencil-dusting on the cookies 🙂 I always believe that things will get done faster if we work as a team with a correct person!
This recipe was adapted from a recipe in Better Homes and Gardens magazine (not sure if there is an online version). We reduced the sugar a little as we did not want the cookies to be too sweet after the dusting. If you skipped the dusting, you may add back the deducted 1/2 cup of granulated sugar to the recipe. Since I don’t have store-bought stencil in the holiday theme, I made my own stencil by using the snowflakes and star paper punches; simply punch on a clean round card stock.
Merry Christmas and have a blessed Holiday!!!
