Tis the season, right? Gingerbread cookies, especially in the shape of gingerbread men, are my weakness. Hand me a gingerbread man and a cup of coffee, and you’ll have 100% of my attention.

Now I’ve always been a fan of gingerbread cookies, but to be honest, I usually end up buying them instead of baking them. myself. 

Why, you might ask? Well since moving into our new apartment, my closet of baking supplies has gone down the drain. When I was living at my parent’s house in New England after graduating in January, I had my mother’s kitchen, which of course was stocked with all the baking essentials. Let’s be honest Matt & I don’t have all that much time to bake, so we just don’t have the supplies on hand. 

So the other day I was window shopping at my local mall (obviously) and came across this gingerbread cookie mix and thought, why not. I try a lot of baking mixes so when I discover a goodie, I have to share it with you guys, and this one was a KEEPER! 



All you have to do is add eggs & butter to the mix, allow time for the mix to sleep overnight and then get out those cookie cutters early the following morning. This gingerbread cookie mix blew my expectations away, the cookies had an almost almond taste to them, making them a perfect combination of holiday cookie and gingerbread. Sometimes gingerbread cookies can be a little too strong on the ginger, if you know what I mean. 

Oh & this post is NOT sponsored it’s just an amazing product I discovered, that you all need to try out. If you’re a girl or guy looking to bake some Christmas cookies while working with limited supplies or a kitchen, yes I’m talking to you college, broke out of college or grad school peeps. This mix will give you plenty of cookies to spread the Christmas joy while not breaking your bank. 

Some of my best memories happened when baking with friends, even if baking means pouring a mix out of a box. For me it counts, no judgement here.

    Love gingerbread men! My favorite are always the Little Debbie ones, but homemade look so much better and are probably more tasty! Looks like a great gift for roommates and friends! Yummy!

    I love gingerbread man and lets be honest just about anything and everything Christmas. Your’s look delicious and really cute and since I’m a little baking obsessed I’ll probably try making some from scratch this week.
    Ok, this is off topic but your instagram story yesterday of you and Matt in 2010 was soooo cute!
