I usually like my gingerbread cookies a little spicier or more ginger-y than this, but the delicious frosting made up for it by far. :)

Often, gingerbread cookies I've tasted are hard but these were not which made me like them even more. Perfect ginger flavor!

These gingerbread cookies taste just like Christmas. The flavor is perfect and the texture is slightly chewy--which is perfect for this type of cookie. Personally, I think the gingerbread women taste the best, but I won't decide for you. )
