Is your home less than perfect this time of year? I’m sharing my imperfect Christmas home tour – looks like lots of people can relate (laundry & dirty dishes included)
OK – honestly the easiest “recipe” ever today! I can’t take credit for these soft and chewy gingerbread cookies – my mom’s friend gave her the idea, I tried it, and LOVED it!! I thought you might love it too!
I don’t know about you – but I’m more of a “soft cookie” girl. I love gingerbread, but I don’t like how hard the gingerbread snaps are that you get at the food store. This softens them right up and makes them soft & chewy – just the way I like them!!
Ready for the EASY “recipe”?? Simply buy some gingerbread snaps (I just go generic) and vanilla icing.
Spread the icing (generously) on a cookie and make a sandwich.
Here’s the trick – seal them in a container and let them sit for 4 full days.
If you’re like me and will be tempted to open them up beforehand – put them in a top shelf of a cabinet and write a reminder on your calendar to take them down in 4 days. Once they’ve sat, the icing helps to soften them up and they’re perfectly chewy & soft! I love this as a dessert idea for when you’re hosting people because there’s no baking involved, and you just have to pull them out before your guests arrive. So simple!
What are your favorite dessert shortcut ideas?
