The Twelve Cookies of Christmas: Gingerbread Bites

12 Cookies of Christmas 2012

Gingerbread Cookie Bites

 

I love all things gingerbread.  The very best I’ve ever eaten was a gingerbread shingle.  Seriously – a shingle.  Not just any shingle mind you, but a chocolate-covered one created by those talented pastry chefs at Walt Disney World for the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa.  In a word, amazing.

 

In the past I’ve recreated a similar confection, using a traditional cut-out gingerbread cookie and coating one side of it with chocolate.  Delicious but time consuming for sure.

 

Then, I discovered an easier approach:  Gingerbread Bites.  You can follow the recipe and instructions provided for cookie kebabs.  Or you can take the truly easy way out:  cut them into squares, diamonds or triangles and just before serving sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar.

 

Several options for coffee, tea, and cocktails exist.  Try one and you won’t be disappointed!

 

Coffee:

Grandma’s Ginger Cookie

 

Tea:

Gingerbread Spice or Cinnamon Vanilla

 

Creamer:

Warm Cinnamon Sugar Cookie

 

Syrup:

Gingerbread by Monin or Gingerbread by Torani 

 

Cocktail:

Gingerbread Cocktail from Giada De Laurentiis.
