My First Gingerbread Man Cookies

I’ve never baked or tasted these cookies before… And I love ginger!


What a waste of time!

This situation couldn’t keep going, so I decided to make Kristin’s recipe from The Pastry Affair because I’ve been reading her blog forever and it was about time to make one of her recipes.


I loved these cookies so much that I won’t wait till next Christmas to bake them again! They go great with coffee, so I’m thinking to have them in my storeroom permanently for breakfast… But maybe with a different cookie cutter 🙂

I wish you a Merry Christmas!


Gingerbread Man Cookies: 30 cookies (my cookie cutter is 6cm x 5cm)
