Gingerbread Snowflakes

I have to admit that one of my guilty pleasures is MTV’s Catfish, not only is it entertaining but it’s where I learned about Google’s reverse image search! On the show they use it to see if people are misrepresenting themselves online, well I decided to give it a try on some of my photographs just to see if they were floating around anywhere. This was a shot I took quite a few years ago during one of my holiday baking sessions and posted on Flickr, much to my surprise I found that it is all over weheartit, Tumblr, Pinterest and other similar sites, so I thought I should give it a proper home here and include the recipe with it.

These cookies are one of my go to recipes for gingerbread cut-outs, they keep their shape very well, have a great spicy flavour and actually get better after a few days which makes them a great make ahead cookie for the holidays. Here I have used a set of snowflake cutters but you could use the traditional gingerbread man cutter or any shape you like!

What’s your go to holiday cookie?
