How to Make Easy Homemade Gingerbread Cookies

Today is December 1st, and that means that Christmas season has officially begun!  But who are we kidding?  We have been in full on Christmas prep mode since about the second week of November!  LOL  Christmas has always been my favorite time of year.  As a child my mom always made this season magical. Now that I am a mom it is my hope that I can share that same kind of magic with my son.  One of the traditions I always looked forward to was cooking baking.  Growing up we always made the usuals, but this I got to shake things up a bit.  Part of our homeschool curriculum required us to baked homemade gingerbread cookies.  I was equally scared and excited.  I am not a great baker, so you can imagine my concerns.  Well, this recipe was SO EASY and I only had to pick up one ingredients  from the store.  Camden (my son) was even able to do most of the work!  

 The best part was they were absolutely delicious!  I can't wait to share with you How to Make Easy Homemade Ginger Bread Cookies so let's get Started!
