Festive cooking never fails to bring out the Kid in us - esp baking. The fun of loved ones milling about, shouts of laughter and arguments, kids running here and there makes us jump with utmost glee. Thanksgiving always reminds me of the Gingerbread Man, of course after Pumpkin Pie. I just realized that I had almost all the gingery bites posted. Right from Gingerbread to Gingersnaps to Ginger Cookies and I seemed to have missed on the most funnest of them all - yes Gingerbread Man.Gingerbread Man is actually a cookie and is based on a fairy tale.It is crunchy and has a delicious bite to it.
I have tried many recipes but the one I love most is this one which I stumbled upon all of a sudden when I ran out of ingredients right in the middle of making a batch. I ran out on Brown sugar and Molasses, two essential ingredients and dint have enough as asked for in the recipe. So instead I made use of some brown Rice syrup and Demerera Sugar lying in my pantry and VIOLA! This one was a total winner.
