Now that Thanksgiving is over Christmas is right around the corner. The decorations are out and cheery carols are playing in all the stores to get us all in the mood. Against my better judgement I have been sucked into the spirit early and find myself rolling out gingerbread cookies. I love the warm fragrant spices and the pretty rustic decorations my kids like to pipe with royal icing on these cute rows of cookie people.
I will certainly be making vanilla sugar cookies to accompany my gingerbread creations as well. These cookies are a great way to start Christmas celebrations and freeze beautifully if you want to make them early. Merry early Christmas!
