Gingerbread People Cookies

This recipe for Gingerbread People Cookies is sponsored by All-Clad Canada. 

It’s gingerbread season!!! Dev’s favourite flavour season of the year because she is obsessed with gingerbread. Which means we can’t go through the holiday season without making something gingerbread flavoured. Thanks to All-Clad Canada it was easier than ever. We were sent their Pro-Release Bakeware 5-Piece Set and their 5-Piece Silicon Tool Set – just what we needed to make delicious Gingerbread People Cookies!

Gingerbread is pretty much the only thing that gets Dev through the winter season. If it wasn’t for them, she wouldn’t be able to handle the snow, the holiday season or anything else. So let’s all give a big round of applause to gingerbread for a second.

  • Roll out dough on a flour surface or in between two sheets of parchment until about 1/3" thick. Make them thicker or thinner depending on a how soft you want your cookie.
  • Place cookies on a lined baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes or until golden.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool on cooling rack for about 10 minutes. We didn't ice them, but if you want to make sure the cookies cool completely before you do.
