I really wanted these cookies to be delicious, as gingerbread cookies are so often the opposite of delicious! The recipe I used came from an old issue of Cook’s Illustrated, and it also appeared in the America’s Test Kitchen Family Cookbook. It got glowing reviews online, and the accolades were well deserved. The cookies were spicy without being bitter or harsh. They were soft and puffy instead of thin roofing tiles. And they were easy to make! I think we might have a new (and improved!) family tradition on our hands!
