Today is Christmas eve, so naturally I wanted to make something festive, and what is more festive than gingerbread cookies? Using a recipe my mother’s friend gave me, I tried them out. It was a pretty simple recipe that I used, but unfortunately the cookies did not come out as expected. I think where I went wrong was in the mixing but I can not be sure. They still tasted okay, having a sugary molasses taste and good consistency, but these are something that definitely need another try!
