Gingerbread Cookies

Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas. It’s the most awesome time of the year. But just because it’s awesome doesn’t mean you start getting all Christmassy in October. That’s just stupid. But it’s now the latter part of November which is a perfectly acceptable time to start your festive baking, like these awesome cookies. But hey, just like puppies, gingerbread is not just for Christmas, so feel free to bake these year round.
