I'm just catching up with this month's Pinterest theme and I've picked my absolutely most favorite holiday treat, which is...
This is the sweetest gingerbread house I've seen this season, and I've looked at lots of them. I was so taken with the peppermint decor and the little sledder by the side of the house. I like ginger sweets in all permutations, from latte to cookies to candied ginger. The ginger snap was the first cookie I ever baked independently -- in the third grade -- and I was so proud to follow the recipe and actually produce cookies. My mother was a wonderful baker and thought it was not too soon to teach me to bake from scratch.
Is anyone else a gingerbread fan? If not, what's your favorite holiday sweet?
Sweet, sweet dreams!
