Not The Gumdrop Buttons!

One of my favorite Christmas cookies has to be gingerbread. I've never made it from scratch because it's always intimidated me, but when I found this recipe by Martha Stewart I decided that this was the year. My mom and I spent Saturday making all sorts of Christmas delicacies and these turned out incredible. They were soft but not mushy and the perfect balance of sweet and spice-y (as opposed to spicy hot) with a fantastic aftertaste that makes me want to grab another cookie. I used the royal icing instructions as well to decorate them and again, it went great. My decorating skills on the other hand leave something to be desired. An artist I am not. Thankfully that doesn't impair their ability to taste delicious!
