This is my family's favorite Christmas Cookie. They call me every day to see if I have made them yet. And I have to make at least 3 batches.
These cookies taste wonderful, like gingerbread but not quite as spicy. I canâ€™t make these so small as 1/8 teaspoon is very difficult to pipe for me so I make them a little less than 1/4 teaspoon â€“ just make them as small as you can. They spread a bit so make sure not to crowd them. I bake them on a silicone sheet (aka Silpat). If you like crispy cookies bake them about six to seven minutes but if you prefer a bit chewier bake them for five to six minutes. As with all cookies you should rotate the pans for even baking.
These are perfect. Nice and crisp. Bake for 4-5 minutes, then let sit on the baking sheet for about a minute before removing to a cooling rack. Otherwise they will curl. If you let them rest a minute they firm up and are easily spatula-ed off the pan and retain their shape.
