Gingerbread Cookies Recipe

If you love gingerbread cookies raise your hand.
We love them when they’re soft and warm and good to eat and I love them when they’re hard enough to break your teeth ‘cuz then they’re perfect for going on the Christmas tree. We also love how easy they are to make! Try this recipe, we think you’ll love it too. You can pick up ingredients at Target.
