Soft spicy gingerbread cookies…

Yes, it’s another Sunday afternoon bake! Last week, someone at work mentioned the soft gingerbread biscuits their grandmother used to make, and I thought I’d have a go at making some. The flat now smells extremely festive – I’m resisting putting the Christmas tree up for another few days (I usually put it up a couple of weeks before I go home for the Christmas break) but the whole place smells spicy and sugary and very Christmassy!

I used this recipe from Two Peas And Their Pod and it was great – I did find I had to use more flour to make the dough into something that I could roll into balls (I think chilling the dough first might have helped, too) and I think because of that I should have upped the spices a bit, as the finished cookies are gently warming rather than in-your-face gingery. But they’re still delicious, and the coating of white sugar makes them look like they’ve been dusted with a little touch of frost.

Yum yum! I’ll have to see what the verdict at work is tomorrow…!
