Woven Gingerbread Cookies

Happy winter! ‘Tis officially the season to get into the spirit, and with Christmas this week, everything feels a bit more festive. I attempted these Woven Gingerbread Cookies (recipe here), and they turned out really well. Weaving the dough is so much fun, but it’s definitely a time commitment. When the dough starts to get soft after chilling, pop it back in the freezer for a short while (10 minutes) so you can roll it out again with ease. Because you’ll need strips of the gingerbread dough, the pieces are a bit more fragile. If you’re attending any holiday parties this week, these cookies will be a sure hit.

  1. You certainly have a lot of patience to work with recipes like this. I noticed your Challah Bread recipe as well. Weaving each piece takes time, but it can be an understandable special effort for the holidays. Beautiful photography, by the way!
