Gingerbread is an iconic holiday scent—and flavour. And as the holidays approach, there’s nothing quite like the aroma of freshly baked gingerbread cookies filling the house; this year, Ikea has even released free downloadable patterns for gingerbread versions of its furniture.
From our rich and chewy gingerbread, to perfectly crisp gingersnaps and Belgian-style speculaas cookies, the gallery below is more than full of festive inspiration. (We doubt you can choose just one of our gingerbread cookie recipes! And, as always, get all of our holiday cookie recipes here.)
These crispy cookies offer a satisfying crunch. And the best part: since the dough can be refrigerated (plus the baked cookies keep for five days in an airtight container), these are great make-ahead treats. Get our gingersnaps recipe.
