gingerbread cookies

I have broken my earlier bah humbug moment, which had me declaring a moratorium on baking for the season, to make our family cookies. These are great grandma Olsson’s gingerbread cookies, a staple in our house every year for as long as I can remember. They are crisp and spicy, and now that they are made, Christmas can happen.

Is there a food that you need to make in order for the holidays to feel like the holidays?

  1. Wow that is a heap! Are you going to post the recipe or is that a top secret family recipe? I have little girl and boy cookie cutters just like yours.
