  1. I haven’t had gingerbread biscuits since my grandmother passed. My mouth is water, and I think it’s about time I make these gems. Thanks for the recipe – and the reminder. 🙂

  2. These look yummy. I love gingerbread cookies at Christmas time and used to make them all the time since I was a child. Now in Japan, I don’t have all the tools to make gingerbread men, so I make regular round soft ginger cookies. They do job just as well 😉

  3. Gingerbread is the taste of Christmas. I was only saying today that this is the first year I haven’t made any gingerbread, but I still have time 🙂
