These GingerBread cookies ❄️ have been a complete success !

They are very easy to make and so delicious 😋 plus you will have a lot of fun baking with family and friends . They are also a great option if you want to give as a gift 💝.

I chose the snowflake shape , but feel free to use any shape you like ! One important tip is to put the butter in the freezer for 30 minutes before starting the recipe , that will help you to avoid the dough melting quickly while you cut the cookies .

The recipe shared is vegan but for the non vegan recipe you just have to change the following ingredients :

Vegan butter by normal butter

Vegan yolk/whites by normal eggs

I hope you enjoy it!
