I am a big lover of Christmas. There's nothing better than summer time filled with endless celebrations, where presents aren't the only thing being 'wrapped up', as another year draws to a close.
I don't believe in spending a crazy amount on gifts and think making something special for loved ones can be just as sweet.
You all know I am a relatively new cook, so believe me when I say how pleased I am with the turnout of my Gingerbread Men cookies! They make a great gift idea. If you are up for the challenge and want to follow this recipe, I added more ginger powder and slightly less sugar. I also opted to stay away from the coloured icings, knowing simple is sometimes better. And finally, I used nutmeg instead of mixed spice (simply because that's what I had at home).
If you have a fun, home cooked gift idea, I'd love to hear it!
Have a great weekend.
