Welcome to Gingerbread world

Ask anyone about gingerbread and you get many different replies. Some see it as crisp, flat gingerbread cookies, others as a square “bread” loaf, some as a cake made with warming spices for a cold afternoon’s teatime, yet others as a construction material for gingerbread houses. More of that later! Sometimes a deep, dark brown, sometimes a delicate light chocolate color, always sweet and spicy.

Sometimes served plain, sometimes with butter and jam, sometimes even with whipped cream for a real treat! Frequently, especially as cookies, cut into the shapes of men, women, animals or stars. Many times decorated with frosting, chocolate chips, or dried fruit.

What is sure is that gingerbread has been around for a long, long time and is forever a popular treat.

What a versatile comestible!
