Gingerbread Cookies - My Very Favorite

What is your very favorite kind of cookie? Mine is gingerbread. I am CRAZY over gingerbread. I love the smell of gingerbread cookies as they cool after baking and while they are waiting to be decorated. Yum. I love gingerbread so much that I decided that I need some special gingerbread cookie cutters of my own design. These are not actually gingerbread dough, but I had fun making these.

 I started with a gingerbread house. I have a few gingerbread house cookie cutters, but this is exactly the one I wanted and I'm very happy with it. You can get one HERE

Then I made Ginny the Gingerbread Girl with bow and scarf. I love her. Cookie cutter available HERE

 and lastly I made Giselle the Gingerbread girl with apron and bow. Cookie cutter available HERE

 My son and his girlfriend had a wonderful time making a gingerbread house over the holidays.

 Then after the gingerbread house, they decided to try out decorated cookies and ended up having a lot of fun with my extra icing colors.
 They did a great job and the cookies were super yummy!

This is an old photo of Abigail, but it was so cute with these cookies that I couldn't resist

So tell me, what is your FAVORITE type of cookie?

Gingerbread blog background for today: 


  1. My favorite is chocolate chip. The gingerbread girls and house are so cute.

    1. Thankfully I don't like chocolate. It's my one saving grace away from sweets ;-) My son is a freak over gingerbread like me, but his very favorite is mint-chocolate chip decorated cookies. He flips over those. We might have to make some this summer :-)

    2. These are so adorable!! My favorite is any kind with peanut butter AND my sugar cookie dough with cream cheese in it :)

    3. I have to agree that peanut butter cookies are super yummy too. I think those are my daughter's favorite.

    4. Peanut butter chocolate chip is the bestest!! Although yesterday I made oatmeal peanut butter chocolate chip and they are yum yum yum!

    5. All I'm going to say to that is "ewwwww". That sounds like too many flavors in one cookie to me Missa Anne. You're a funny funny girl. I'm making oatmeal scotchies today. Yum.
