Advent: Christmas ginger biscuits


There's something about the warming smell of spices that seem to surround winter and especially Christmas.  While we can bake ginger biscuits at any time of the year, the gingerbread people and gingerbread houses seem to be the trendy thing to do during Christmas time.

We have a set of Christmas-themed cookie cutters which Tiger used to cut the basic gingerbread dough.

Unlike last year when Tiger made more elaborated decorations to his homemade cookies, this year Tiger has made a whole load of humble ginger biscuits instead, which are very tasty without any of the artificial colourings.

Some of these are packed as gifts to friends in the neighbourhood:

Even though we did not make the traditional gingerbread people this year, they still feature prominently in our household in the form of a garland.  I chanced upon a set of pre-cut gingerbread men shapes to be strung together.  The stringing-together bit is very similar to the paper chains that Tiger made last week.

Now the garland sits nicely where we get to see it every day.  It curves like a smile and indeed puts a smile on our faces each time we walk past it.
