👩🍳How to make gingersnap cookies
Christmas cookies are a delicious way to show Christmas cheer. This year, try your hand at making gingerbread cookies dipped in melted white chocolate and sprinkles.
The key to a perfect gingerbread cookie is in the spices. A combination of cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and nutmeg gives these cookies their signature flavor. Be sure to use fresh spices for best results.
Gingersnap cookies are a popular during the holiday season, and they can be enjoyed on their own or used as an ingredient in other recipes.
Another tip is to use molasses rather than sugar for a deeper flavor. Once you've mixed up the dough, you can either scoop the cookie dough onto a baking tray or roll it out thin and use festive cookie cutters to create Christmas shapes.
Can gingerbread cookies be frozen?
Gingerbread cookies can be frozen. Once they are baked and cooled completely, they can be placed in an airtight container or bag and stored in the freezer for up to three months.
When you're ready to enjoy them again, simply remove the desired number of cookies from the freezer and allow them to thaw at room temperature.
Be aware that the decorating sugars or icing may soften slightly during thawing. If you prefer, you can freeze them without the melted chocolate.
