A Good Food Week

This has been what I would classify as a good food week. There was carnival food, mint, ice cream, and now ginger cookies! :) Christmas is one of my favorite times of year and one of the main reasons for that is gingerbread! I LOVE gingerbread! I'm not sure why or how gingerbread ended up being a Christmas food, but it saddens me to think that most people only eat ginger cookies during the holidays. I always make sure I get a healthy helping of ginger cookies at least two or three times during the "off season." These are my very, very favorite ginger cookies:

They are my husband's triple ginger cookies! And they are soft, chewy, and delicious! I could probably eat two dozen of these without even trying! Not the there is anything wrong with Christmasy cookies, especially gingerbread men, who are as much fun to make as they are to eat! I actually have a couple of gingerbread Christmas ornaments in my shop right now and this little guy is going to be joining them very shortly. :)

Russian Dancer Gingerbread Man Felt Christmas Ornament

He started out as a plain gingerbread man, but something about him reminded me of the Nutcracker Suite, and he ended up dressed like a Russian dancer. I think he looks very handsome, and very tasty! :)

So since this weekend I seem to have ginger on the brain, here is a selection of ginger, Etsy style! Enjoy! :)

  1. I LOVE those cookies! I have a wheat and gluten intollerance so my husband makes me "free from" versions - tasty! Debs :)

  2. oooo. yummy. love that ginger portrait too.

  3. Thanks everybody! :)

    Debs102 - That sounds good! I'll have to try that out. A couple of my cousins have a problem with gluten, I bet these cookies would be just as good without it! :)

    ana - Isn't that cute? I love the color!
