So we put ourselves to bake to bring you this easy DIY gingerbread cookies, is so easy then even if you don't consider yourself a pâtissier person there is no way for you to ruin this one.

An additional tip that we want to add and highly encourage is preparing the dough one day ahead, let it rest overnight for softer yummier cookies, the more time you give to the mixture the easier to work with since sometimes can be sticky,
