As a little girl, one of my favorite parts of the holiday season was baking gingerbread cookies with my mom and sister.
My mother would mix the dough and roll it out perfectly.
My sister and I would cut the cookies and eat the little scraps of dough left behind.
Then we’d all decorate them.
So you can image how excited I was to learn that Make it Paleo had a Paleo Gingerbread Man recipe! It’s been a long time since I’ve made cookie-cutter cookies and I was super excited to give this recipe a try.
Me being me (aka a person who doesn’t necessarily follow all of the directions), I thought it would be okay to substitute butter for palm shortening. My Whole Foods only had vegetable shortening…which seemed quite suspect, so I decided to pass.
During the baking process, the dough balls melted into dough blobs. Hence the blog title Gingerbread Blobs.
Although I think Chester was a little bummed he didn’t get to eat any dough scraps…
What kinds of Christmas (or Chanukah) cookies did you make as a kid? Which ones do you make now?
