Grandma VandenPlas made these wonderful gingerbread cookies every Thanksgiving when our kids were little.
These cut-out cookies are thick, chewy and the molasses and ginger flavor is fabulous! If you don't have time for fancy decorating, we have also frosted these with a simple white glaze. Plan on hiding your decorated stash in order to save until the big day - these go FAST with sneaky and hungry little fingers around!
These are a delicious family tradition - and I am honored that she gave us the family "turkey" cookie cutter to carry on the tradition!
