So after my major crafting fail on Saturday I really needed some success to pick me up. My task for our work holiday party last week was to make a ginger cake. After I made it, I realized I had all the ingredients (like molasses, ginger, allspice, etc) to make gingerbread cookies. I have never made gingerbread cookies before so I decided to go for it. I found a gingerbread cookie recipe in The Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook that my sister (wut up L-Fab?) gave me for my birthday.

Have you ever made gingerbread cookies?
Do you think Ted Mosby would count these as a Christmas themed movie snack?
