Gingerbread Frosting for Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2012
Lovely and unique flavor! It is a warm spicy flavor without overpowering your cookies or whatever you put it on. I did not have cloves, so just omitted and found it very nice. I don't think I would add cloves it I had them. Mine was a tiny bit soft - I was trying to decorate cookies, so maybe next time I would add a bit more powdered sugar. Keep it in the fridge or stick it in the freezer a few minutes when working with it.

Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2012
I did not use cloves- I didn't have any- but I thought the flavor was just perfect, definitely spicy but not over the top. When rolling out the dough it got soft pretty quickly, so you have to work quite fast and keep the excess in the fridge. Keep dusting your surface and even the spatula to move them to the tray. However, it is so worth it. They bake beautifully. I let them go 10 minutes- I prefer a little crispness, and found them perfect.---After cooling I used a white frosting and a gingerbread flavored frosting and they tasted fab.
