‘Stay Tuned’ that’s what I said in my last post- 3 months back! Those of you who ‘stayed tuned’ thanks a lot- I really appreciate your patience, those who didn’t please come back..coz I am back! 🙂 Yes the hectic life is getting the better of me and is keeping me very very busy and still I wanted to drop in here for the last time in 2011 with a simple recipe for Gingerbread cookies.
I am hoping 2012 will be a much better year for me- blogwise; I hope I can be more regular so that I can share my kitchen adventures (there have been many!) with you more often.
The Gingerbread cookies; Almost everyone has a recipe for them. Mine is from a lovely book called ‘Home Baking’. This book (publisher: parragon book) is packed with recipes to suit all tastes and occasions -from pies to tarts to muffins and biscuits, simple cakes to elaborate gateaux. So don’t be surprised if you see some more holiday recipes from the book in the New Year.
With 2 small vacationing kids at home, I ran out of ideas to keep them away from any mischief! The little one is quite a handful and the 6 yr.old gets bored easily without any activities. Gingerbread cookies kept them busy for almost 2 days- 1 day cutting and baking, the next day for decorating. I didn’t have the gingerbread men cookie cutters so our gingerbread cookies are all shapes from Halloween to Christmas 🙂
The cookies were absolutely delicious with the warm ginger + spice flavour and were consumed in no time by the 2 little elves in my kitchen.
Here’s the recipe:
