Gingerbread Cookies ~ From Vegetate, Vegan Cooking & Food Blog

“And I had but one penny in the world. Thou should’st have it to buy gingerbread.” — William Shakespeare, Love’s Labours Lost

These little ginger gems are from the incredible new cookbook Betty Goes Vegan, by Annie & Dan Shannon, page 260.

This recipe conjures up dozens of soft, chewy gingerbread cookies that are so spicy and delicious you seriously cannot stop eating them once you start. Iced with Apple Vanilla Glaze, page 398.

We cut ours into stars, iced them, and added sugar sparkles. Then we wrapped them (some of them, heh!) up in compostable baggies, tied them with some vintage ribbon and gave them to friends.

Gingerbread Facts: Queen Elizabeth I is believed to be responsible for the first gingerbread man as she had them made to resemble visiting dignitaries and then presented them to the dignitaries as a gift.
