In the eleventh century, pilgrims and soldiers returned home from the Crusades and introduced ginger to the Europeans. Almost instantly, the English created a therapeutic ginger candy. Two hundred years later, bread crumbs were added to the mixture and gingerbread was born. – The Gingerbread Cottage
Ginger cookies are one of my absolute favorite and I am always in search of the perfect gingersnap. These Iced Ginger Stars come awfully darn close. Iced Ginger Stars are crisp and gingery, with just a touch of sweetness. They make the perfect dunking cookie and can be used for edible Christmas ornaments. Place a bean at the top of the cutout star prior to placing in the oven and remove after baking while cookie is still warm. This creates a perfect hole to thread a brightly colored ribbon through for hanging on the tree.
