Williamsburg Gingerbread Cookies

Williamsburg Gingerbread Cookies

"Take a step back in time with a classic holiday treat! These simple and delicious Old-Fashioned Williamsburg Gingerbread Cookies have been loved for generations -- and you will soon discover why! An annual holiday visit to Williamsburg was a family tradition in our home, since it was one of my grandmother's favorite seasonal activities. In addition to the beautiful Christmas decorations, the music, and the festive spirit, I still remember looking forward to the delicious Cream of Peanut Soup at the King's Arms Tavern and the old-fashioned gingerbread cookies from the Raleigh Tavern Bakery. Oh, that gingerbread is such a treat! Even as adults, if my brother and I are ever in Colonial Williamsburg, we make a point to stop in the Raleigh Tavern to pick up some gingerbread cookies to go. There's nothing better than the aroma of freshly-baked gingerbread cookies wafting through the kitchen, with a mug of warm cider on the side! They're such a special, unique dessert. The gingerbread cookies are warmly spiced with a strong molasses flavor, but they're not overly sweet and the texture is a perfect cross between a gingerbread cookie and a slice of gingerbread cake. They're soft (not crispy like some gingerbread cookies), and they're thick, chewy, and "cakey." In my opinion, they're holiday dessert perfection."

*I use a round biscuit cutter that measures 3 inches in diameter, but any shape will work.
