When it comes to the Holidays, people look forward to delicious treats specially made for the season. One of the treats is delicious and adorable gingerbread cookies. These sweet pastries not only taste great, but decorating them can also be a fun activity for the entire family to enjoy.
People-shaped gingerbread cookies are the most popular designs of these delicious pastries. But they are not limited to boys and girls. Others sometimes go all out and create full-on gingerbread houses. Icing, fruit, sprinkles, and chocolates are used to create amazing designs for gingerbread men, ladies, boys, girls, and homes!
When exactly did the Gingerbread cookies become popular holiday treats?
One historical account claims Queen Elizabeth I ordered her cooks to make pastries the likeness of some esteemed guests. They loved the gesture so much that it blew up and became popular all over Europe. Soon after, villages started celebrating “gingerbread fairs” in honour of the Queen’s gingerbread designs.
According to another story, Gingerbread cookies were said to be sacred and too special to be baked on any normal occasion that the general public was only allowed to make during Christmas and Easter. Now, people can bake Gingerbread cookies any time of the year but they become more special during the Holidays.
This two-foot Gingerbread Boy may not smell or even taste as the Holiday treat, but it can make Christmas fans turn their heads in excitement. The collection also includes a Gingerbread Man, Gingerbread Lady, and Gingerbread Girl.
