I think if you met me in real life you would probably think that I was Buddy the Elf’s sister. I get more excited about Christmas than he does. I don’t play tag with taxi cabs or eat gum that has already been chewed but, I will bake gingerbread cookies all year long. I like them so much that I send boxes of undecorated cookies with all the decorating supplies to friends for Christmas. I include the gingerbread cookie recipe along with icing and undecorated cookies.
Begin with a Gingerbread Cookie Recipe:
Begin by making some gingerbread men cookies. When you bake them, your house will smell amazing and if you want, you can call me to come over and we can make snow angels for a two hours, then we’ll go ice skating, then we’ll eat a whole roll of Tollhouse Cookiedough as fast as we can, and then we’ll snuggle. It sounds like the perfect day to me!
Mix some royal icing in a few colors and place them into Ziplock bags. Tie them with some ribbon or ripped fabric.
Place the gingerbread men cookies into cellophane bags and seal them with a heat sealer or fold the top over and tape it to the back.
Arrange everything in the box so it fits nicely. If you ship the cookies, you need to make sure the cookies are snug and don’t slide around. If they move, they could break. If you need boxes to put the cookies in you should check out the BRP Box Shop. They have a huge selection.

This Christmas I got to participate in the Great Bloggers Cookie Swap to raise money for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. It was very fun and super simple thanks to Lindsay of Love & Olive Oil and Julie of The Little Kitchen! These girls work hard to put this together each year and I am so glad I got to participate.
If you are a food blogger interested in participating in next year’s swap, be sure to sign up for the notifications list.
If you do, you will receive cookies from some amazing bloggers. I was so happy to get Almond Meltaway Cookies from Chew Nibble Nosh and desicious cookies from My Kitchen Kreations to You. They were so GOOD!
Thank you so much ladies for the Amazing COOKIES!!
