Gingerbread Tips and Tricks

Everywhere you turn the aroma of cinnamon and spice waft through the air. Gingerbread is representative of all things Holiday spirited. These favorite treats were one of the were one of the first sweet treats used in winter celebrations, and they are still a fan favorite.

Hi, I',m Chef Heather from the Chocolate Mousse Catering and I'd like to offer you some quick tricks on how to fill your home with the fresh scent and taste of gingerbread.

Tip 1: Do not over mix your dough. Over mixed dough will create tough cookies.

Tip 2: Chill your dough for at least 1 hour then dust with confectionery sugar and flour for no hassle rolling

Tip 3: Lightly mist your cookie cutter with cooking spray for easy slip-away cutouts

Tip 4: Bake your cookies until just the edges crisp up, the cookies will firm as they cool

Tip 5: Gingerbread cookies can be made up to 2 weeks in advance and maintain their integrity and flavor. So if you're considering a large gingerbreading projects but the idea of cooking is overwhelming, go ahead and make a few pieces day by day and store them in an airtight container until you're ready to assemble!
