I made gingerbread cookies for the first time a couple of years ago. I had no idea whether I’d like them, I just thought it would be fun. Thankfully, I found an excellent recipe that turns out soft, delicious cookies every time.
I made them again this year to take to a holiday party, and now I’m thinking that this will be a holiday tradition. My family never made/ate gingerbread – it’s something that will start with me, and that’s kind of fun.
I always wanted to create my own holiday traditions with J. Like – we would travel every Thanksgiving to some new place; we would fill each other’s stockings with handmade gifts; we would make handmade cards or drive around to look at Christmas lights or see the Nutcracker or make popcorn-and-cranberry garlands. Nothing has really stuck, but maybe this will. Especially because gingerbread cookies are AMAZING for breakfast, dipped in coffee. 😉
