Holiday Traditions Made of Gingerbread

Traditions are what the holidays are made of.

Whether it’s getting a fresh tree, driving around to view Christmas lights or deciding who will stay up to “catch” Santa in action, it’s the little things that we will remember and treasure.

And baking is no exception, especially when gingerbread cookies are involved!

Baking with family this time of year, every year, is a great way to build memories. Don’t worry about messes – they can be cleaned. Seeing your little ones covered in flour or licking the bowl makes for a great photo opportunity that you can look back on and remember always. I’ve always baked with my mom during the holidays. She has the BEST gingerbread recipe! It’s not Christmas if we don’t have these cookies.

Who Doesn’t LOVE Gingerbread?

Just like pumpkin symbolizes fall for me, gingerbread triggers the holiday spirit within me. I love all things gingerbread.
