One of my favourite things about this time of year is gingerbread cookies.  I remember going to the bakery near our home as a child and picking out the best one from the tray. I had a very particular way of eating them. First the legs, then the arms, then the body and lastly the head. Mmmmm that chewy, gingery, warming deliciousness…

These days I am a little more aware of what goes into my body but still to this day gingerbread cookies always take me right back to my eight year old self. Luckily, Cortney from the Daily Pea has come up with this healthier gingerbread recipe. Now I can enjoy my addiction of gingerbread cookies without the guilt (or the side effects). Of course in the olden days they were always gingerbread men but I make sure that in our house we have ginger bread people (and dinosaurs, and sharks, and whatever else takes my son’s fancy). Because lets face it, gingerbread people taste amazing no matter what their shape!
