Last year I worked up a batch of Gingerbread cookies to test my patience, and my ability to work royal icing. Truth, I failed on attempts 1-5. A week after I made those cookies I tried to give it one more try with the royal icing and I finally got it. The cookies in the photo were so many kinds of stale, but they looked great, and tasted great when they were fresh.
I’m absolutely ok with the fact that I’ve decided to make cookies at the beginning of each week in the month of December. Coincidentally so is my husband, his coworkers, and now my coworkers.
