Best Cutout Sugar Cookies


Spicy Gingerbread Cookies

Fill your kitchen with the sweet and spicy smell of classic gingerbread cookies, kicked up a notch by the genius that is Deb Perelman of Smitten Kitchen. These chewy yet sturdy treats can be used for anything from a gingerbread house to gingerbread men to sugary snowflakes, and, as a bonus, can be stored after baking for up to a week. (Some would even say that the longer you keep them, the better they taste.)
