Making it was such a wonderful visceral experience, I really hope I can force gingerbread cookies on enough people to have to make (oh woe is me) a second batch, or maybe even a third. The dough is a lovely velvety honey-dark brown, and smells incredible.
(... of course, I was kind of improvising the recipe. So they may suck. We'll see. If they do, I have an alternate dessert for Sunday: cranberry bread, hot out of the oven)
Note: the cookies are somewhat low fat, considering (3 grams per cookie), but are not vegan. And many thanks to digitalis, who volunteered to help decorate them. My hero.
