Gingerbread Hearts

in All Posts

This is the all-time best gingerbread cookie recipe.  And this icing recipe goes with the cookies perfectly!


The dough is so thick and tasty!


The star ingredient! (Cute label, huh?)


Christy from California won a batch of Gingerbread Hearts in the Blogger Bake Sale, so I’m shipping these to the west coast tomorrow!


Individually wrapped for maximum freshness!


I taste-tested two… and a half. 🙂


PS – Guess who I am babysitting this weekend?


Abbie (Meghann’s puppy!)

    I hope this doesn’t sound critical cause I don’t mean it to be at all … Do you use the raw egg whites in your icing? I am sooooo afraid of raw eggs! What’s your opinion on whether they are safe or not?

    carrie h- that’s not critical at all. i wondered the same thing the first time i tried this icing recipe. however, this is my understanding of the raw egg issue: salmonella is located on the outside of the egg, so as long as the egg doesn’t touch the outside, you’re fine. i washed the eggs with some soap to be sure. also, the odds of salmonella being on your eggs are really, really low. i dont think you need to worry about it!! 🙂

    Cookies look yummy! I didn’t realize individually wrapping cookies kept them fresh longer. I will definitely try that next time I bake.
