the BEST gingerbread

There is so much I love about the holiday season but a house smelling like gingerbread is definitely at the top of my list. I go a little gingerbread crazy: loafs, muffins, cakes, and of course, cookies…it’s a recipe for holiday cheer.

My mum has been using this gingerbread cookie recipe for the past decade or so, and it never fails.  We’ve used it for straightforward cookies, (very yummy) tree ornaments and gingerbread houses. Festive, and oh-so-delicious! See the recipe here: Enjoy!

The loveliest (and yummiest!) ornaments on the tree.

Roll the dough on a piece of parchment dusted with flour.These cookies don't spread when they bake, so you can fit lots of them onto the baking sheet.

This recipe is easy to halve or double (or triple!) so you can make lots and they freeze well for a month or two! (Possibly longer, but they never stay hidden longer than that in my house…)

The perfect treat to go with a hot holiday drink.


  1. Hi Katie! Just discovered your blog. Looking good!! I enjoyed gingerbread trifle this holiday season. Never been keen on the mushiness of trifle, but this won me over…big time! Let me know if you would like the recipe. Rock on in the kitchen!

Have something to say? Please do :)
