Skinny Gingerbread Cookies

December 9, 2016
Hey y’all, happy Friday! First of all I’d like to say how relieved I am for it to be the end of the week – I had so much going on and I am in desperate need of the weekend. Second of all, I’m so sorry I haven’t posted here in a week. Again, I was super busy but I expect another post on either Monday or Tuesday :)

So anyways, since there’s only a little more than a week or so ’til christmas, I thought it would be fitting to do a traditional gingerbread cookie recipe. These are so good and filled with yummy spices, so I hope you try these out some time this holiday season!

I didn’t have any gingerbread man cookie cutters so I improvised by using christmas tree and candy cane cutters :) The present and snowman head ones are just for decoration, but I plan to use those as well.Β 

Honestly this entire process brought back so many old Christmas memories back of my family and I making cookies together, and getting into the holiday spirit by baking!

These cookies are super crisp and spice-y, which I love (sorry about this one being a little blurry!)I’m not the best at decorating cookies, but this is the best I could do lol!

I hope y’all give these a try, they really are so yummy and perfect for a Christmasy treat! Meanwhile, I’ll just be in my room watching Christmas movies and Youtube videos…
