Glazed Gingerbread

This is one of our favorite desserts during the winter holidays and other special occasions. We coated the moist gingerbread biscuits with a rich, thick sugar glaze that makes the flavors pop. You’ll only need one more thing with the gingerbread cookies: a tall glass of warm milk.

I guess I’ve always had a passion for cooking ever since I was a kid when I was mom’s little helper in the kitchen. Even though I wasn’t actually cooking, I was a picky eater, and I focused on bringing more flavor to her dishes, by adding extra herbs and spices I felt might enrich it. Time has passed, and I haven’t changed that much: I am now my girlfriend’s helper.
