Baker’s Solstice Countdown: December 4: Gingerbread Cookies

This is by far the best gingerbread cookie recipe I have ever eaten. Ever. The flavor is complex, full of warmth and spice, and the texture is crispy and light, not dense and tooth-shattering like many gingerbread cookies I have eaten. The cookies don’t need any icing at all, but the addition of royal icing decorations enhances the flavor of these cookies. I used currants for their eyes, but these little people are now safely stowed away awaiting their final decoration, after tomorrow’s bake. Royal icing recipes tend to make a lot of icing, so I like to do all my decorating at once if I can.
