    My Favorite Gingerbread Cookies are easy and fun to make. I love to make a double batch of these and get my kids to decorate them. And they love to bring them to school on the last day before holidays to share with their teachers and friends.

    This is an unusual cookie recipe because the cookie dough needs time to chill. You must chill the dough for at least 3 hours but you can leave it chilling for up to 3 days which means it’s a great cookie dough to make in advance.

    To make My Favorite Gingerbread Cookies, you will need the following ingredients:
