    Chocolatl's Note:

    Adapted from An Edible Christmas. These are soft, tender cookies. They can be frosted, but do not have to be. I like them with royal icing. The yield will depend on how large you make them. Time does not include time for dough to chill.

      We do love the taste of gingerbread, & when I saw this recipe I just knew it would be wonderful to make, & it was, though it was even better in the eating! I'd intended on sharing these nice goodies with those attending a meeting I host each month, but most of them (the cookies, that is!) were gone before the meeting got started! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe, & it's one I'll be making again! [[Made & reviewed for one of the first-week winners in the current Tic-Tac-Toe event]

      My cookie jar is calling to me and I hate talking cookie jars. Had a wonderful cookie-baking day with grandbabe.
