Getting in the holiday spirit over here with gingerbread snowflake cookies!

This is my absolute favorite time of year. I have so many wonderful childhood memories of making holiday baked treats with my Mom, that I can’t help but get nostalgic year after year. I get extremely overzealous every year with making a list of all the recipes I want to make over the holidays, which means my kitchen is basically a non-stop cookie/bar/pie/bread workshop from Labor Day through New Year’s (something my husband never complains about!).

While I always like to bake a nice mix of new recipes and old, there are a handful of staples that are absolute musts—one of which are gingerbread snowflakes.

There are just so many ways you can decorate them, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone actually turn down a gingerbread cookie during the holiday season, so a guaranteed crowd favorite at any Christmas gathering.

Here’s a fun little video showing a couple of my favorite gingerbread snowflake decorating techniques. I hope you enjoy it! 🙂
