The holidays are a time for indulging in delicious treats, and gingerbread cookies are no exception. But why should the fun stop when the holiday season does? Gingerbread cookies can be enjoyed throughout the year and make for a special treat any time. Here’s why you should still indulge in these tasty treats once Christmas is over.
A Timeless Classic
Gingerbread cookies have been around since medieval times, with historians tracing their origins to 11th century Germany. That’s over 1000 years of baking! And with good reason—these sugary treats provide a sweet burst of flavor that can be enjoyed by anyone at any time. Whether it’s for a snack or as part of a festive occasion, these cookies are always sure to please.
The Perfect Holiday Gift
Gingerbread cookies make a great gift anytime of year and come in all shapes and sizes. From houses to hearts to your favorite animal, you can find a gingerbread cookie design that looks just like you want it to. For an extra special touch, consider personalizing your gingerbread creation by adding an individualized message on top or writing some icing words across the side. It’s sure to be appreciated by anyone who receives it!
Make Them Your Own
In addition to giving them away as gifts, you can also enjoy gingerbread cookies yourself by customizing the recipe with different mixes of spices and flavors. Make them spicy or sweet—it’s up to you! You can also get creative with how you decorate them; mix up your color palette, use royal icing swirls, or add some decorative sprinkles for that extra pop of color. With so many possibilities, there’s no limit to how much fun you can have making (and eating!) these yummy creations!
