Loacker is my favorite brand of wafer cookies. Those crispy wafers with a delicious creamy filling in between always hit the spot when I want a sweet treat. I can’t get enough of them. One of my favorite ways to eat Loacker wafers is with a cup of hot coffee. Forget biscotti. Bring me the wafers! I love to have a mid-day snack of these tasty wafers and coffee as a quick boost to power me through the afternoon. Recently, I learned that the company ALSO loves coffee as much as I do!

Homemade Ginger Bread Cookie Recipe

Gingerbread

I really enjoy baking Homemade Ginger Bread Cookies during the holidays.  The aroma of cinnamon and ginger make the house smell fabulous.  I think you’ll like this recipe, there are only a few simple ingredients in it compared to others.  Plus, they are made with organic brown sugar, a healthier alternative!

If you enjoy baking you will really like the baking mats from Good Cook.  I used the baking mat to mead my dough, roll it out, cut my cookies, and even baked on it!  No need to move them after cutting or spray a cookie sheet.  Use a pastry wheel or cookie cutter to get your desired shape, then slide the baking mat on a cookie sheet and bake!

I was impressed with how fast the mat cooled because when your baking mat cools quickly, your cookies cool quickly!  Quick cooling = Fast Eating! 😉

It is a good idea to keep decorating bottles with multiple tips on hand for decorating.  I used the Sweet Creations Decorating bottles because they come with a round and star tip.

This is such a fun recipe for the whole family!  We had a great time baking these.  My children love to decorate cookies!

Make a craft out of it!  Before baking, punch a small hole in each cookie.  Once cooled and decorated, add a ribbon to create a memorable ornament for the Christmas tree.
