We are in the thick of Christmas merriment...
baking, stitching, creating, wrapping
and lots of online shopping and shopping local
(small business), this year.
There is just something about warm, soft
Gingerbread from the oven and
a steaming cup of tea.
These are very simple cookies,
but the real magic is their deliciousness...
I mean, anything with lots of honey
and butter, just has to taste good !
These are soft and not overly sweet.
