Brown sugar and molasses give these cookies a deep sweetness, while ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and pepper add spice. Using a homemade stencil, brush on a thin layer of royal icing and top with sugar or luster dust. This classic decorating technique is easier than it looks and yields beautiful results every time.
Generous amounts of cardamom, allspice, and cloves permeate these thin, crisp cookies with their spicy aroma. The cookies are rolled on a special wood-grain mat to give them their rustic texture, and can be cut out with cookie cutters in the shape of reindeer, trees, stars, or any other Christmas icons you desire.
Cookie and Christmas ornament in one, these gingerbread cookie stars are filled with lemon-kissed caramel, which hardens into translucent candy windows. You will need seven-inch and three-inch star-shaped cookie cutters to make these stained-glass gingerbread cookies.
