The first cookies of the season! These were baked (with a little help) and decorated (no help at all) by my 6 year old daughter. Gingerbread cookies are her absolute favorite and the first batches are all hers . I have to confess that I am enormously far behind in my holiday baking. Normally I start at the end of Oct. (making up doughs and freezing them) because I make up between 30 and 40 baskets every year, between our family in California, and Texas, neighbors, and my husbands employees. This year we are a little backwards. This little pink gingerbread-girl cookie was made especially for Me! (in our favorite color of course!!!) I'm a lucky girl.
