These Holiday Spice Gingerbread Cookies recipe are just the perfect thing needed for this Holiday season! Thank you so much to the Wolfgang Puck Cooking School for sending this amazing and delicious recipe for me to share with everyone! Here’s a little story about these cookies from Maria herself:
“In the little Austrian town where I grew up, my mother was famous for her lebekuchen, or gingerbread cookies. She had a number of secrets, which I share with you in this lesson. One was to grind her own spices, though you can also use good-quality ones that are already ground. She flavored them with a mixture of both fresh and dried ginger. She also sweetened them three different ways, with granulated sugar, dark brown sugar, and blackstrap molasses. And yet, as you’ll discover, these cookies are surprisingly easy—and so much fun—to make and decorate.”
