We love ginger. It adds a flavourful, slightly spicy kick to any dish. It can be used in both savoury dishes and sweet dishes, such as dark chocolate and ginger eclairs (perfect Christmas finger food, anyone?). If that wasn’t enough, it’s also got a string of health benefits, including anti-inflammatory effects, aiding digestion and boosting the immune system which sounds pretty useful over Winter! Luckily for us, ginger and more specifically gingerbread is pretty much synonymous with Christmas.

Gingerbread is over a thousand years old and is massively popular in Europe. Though it’s known all over the world, it seems to differ in every country. Gingerbread and Christmas go hand in hand; here in the UK we’ve been making gingerbread men in the form of a biscuit since way back in the 16th century. They’re great for giving away as presents or hanging on trees.

Germany makes a both a crisp and slightly softer biscuit called Lebkuchen. They can be flavoured with other spices and nuts They can also made into larger biscuits that are shaped like hearts or often horses, then hung and decorated just like gingerbread men, with intricate patterns and piped messages. Look out for them at the German markets during the festive season!

Whilst on the subject of the harder, crisp biscuit, there’s no way that we can talk gingerbread and leave out gingerbread houses! These became popular, particularly in Nordic countries, after the Brothers Grimm published Hansel and Gretel. The panels are glued together using caramel or icing, and are often spectacular works of art. They involve hours of work, precise measurements and copious amounts of sweets, candy other treats for decoration.

In the USA, gingerbread is more of a cake. It’s similar, but not quite the same as Parkin over in the UK. It’s all about the sweet addition, whether it’s treacle, golden syrup or molasses. It’s what will dictate the colour plus the deep, caramel flavour that carries the ginger.

There are so many more forms of gingerbread; from crumbly Dutch Ontbijtkoek, eaten with butter to Swiss Biber, which is filled with marzipan. Whatever form you enjoy ginger at Christmas, make sure you make plenty extra for your loved ones. They’ll thank you for it!

Gingerbread Cookies

Whether or not you actually like gingerbread cookies is kinda irrelevant. You make them every single year because they make people happy. And because they're so damn adorable. We tested this recipe over and over (and over again) until it was perfect. Here's everything you should know.

Softened butter > melted butter.

Melted butter will lead to denser cookies. We like our gingerbread people soft and almost a little fluffy. For this texture, you need to cream the butter and sugar until it's light and fluffy. And for this, the butter needs to be nice and soft.

There's a way to soften butter faster.

On the counter, butter can take forever to soften. I always like to cut my butter into tablespoon tabs to maximise surface area (and exposure to warmth). If even that isn't fast enough, I microwave the butter on a very low level and check on it every 10 seconds. It sounds excessive, but it's necessary. Otherwise, half of it will be melted.

The type of molasses you use can make a BIG difference.

When we ran out of the molasses we usually use in our test kitchen and used another, the cookies came out many shades darker. They still tasted amazing and looked very cute, but the difference was surprising. Especially considering that they looked very similar in the jar.

You can change the number of spices.

For me, gingerbread should have a lot of ground ginger, a bit of cinnamon, and a tiny amount of cloves. It's the perfect Christmas formula. But if you don't have cloves (or really loathe them), you can just leave them out. As for the ginger, it's necessary but negotiable. Feel free to use less.

Don't skip the chill time!

Even if the dough seems rollable after mixing, DO NOT skip refrigerating it. If you roll the dough out before it's really firm, the gingerbread people won't keep their shape in the oven. Be patient and wait at least 3 hours.

You can make the dough ahead of time.

The dough will stay good in the fridge for about 2 days wrapped in plastic wrap. If the disc feels supeerrrr stiff, just let it be on your counter for a bit until it's more pliable.

Cookies will stay good for up to one week.

If you store them in an airtight container at room temperature, they'll stay amazing and soft. Although it's very doubtful that they'll last longer than 10 minutes once they're on a platter.

You can bake the cookies ahead of time.

If you want to plan ahead of time, you can bake and decorate the cookies completely. Just keep them in an airtight container, separated by parchment paper, until ready to serve. If you want to bake the cookies ahead of time, but leave the decorating for later, let the cookies cool completely before freezing them.

You don't need fancy decorating tools.

Yes, the most traditional way to decorate gingerbread people is to pipe royal icing. But they can be just as festive spread with frosting and covered in sprinkles.

They make great gifts!

Because they last for a while and they're sturdy, these make great treats to share with friends, family, and neighbours. They ship well too!

Perfect Christmas gingerbread - Recipes

Gingerbread is one of the most popular Christmas treats. A popular children’s craft is to make a gingerbread house. Gingerbread men are hung as decoration from the Christmas tree. Gingerbread has a festive flavor combination, with warm spices and ginger flavors. Different countries and even cities have their own version of gingerbread. Some are hard, like cookies. These are the types made into houses. Some are softer, with a more chewy texture. We also love the gingerbread cakes, which are moist and rich. All that’s required to call a baked good “gingerbread” is the inclusion of ginger and different spices.

We found 12 amazing and different gingerbread recipes that show you how diverse you can make this treat.

12. Gingerbread French Toast

Have a great Christmas morning breakfast with this gingerbread french toast. Nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves spice the egg mixture that you dip the bread in. Molasses is added for flavor and color. Top with their recipe for gingerbread butter.

11. Traditional Hard Gingerbread Cookies

These gingerbread cookies are a traditional recipe that make perfect Christmas tree decorations. To make the tree ornaments, cut a small hole in each cookie before you bake. An unused straw makes a perfect sized hole. Once baked, thread with ribbon and hang them up!

10. Queen’s Gingerbread

These rich squares are quite like a panforte. This Italian dessert is a richer and stronger version of a British fruitcake. They are served both for dessert and for breakfast. This recipe makes a moist square that works perfectly with the crunchy almonds on top.

9. Gingerbread Panini

Gingerbread cake is thick and moist, making it easy to cut. If you like your cake warm, try and toast the cake slices. This recipe uses the cake texture to its advantage by putting them in a panini press. The result is a crisp yet soft texture.

8. Gingerbread House Cup Toppers

Top your hot chocolate or apple cider with these adorable gingerbread house toppers. Make miniature houses with a pattern and traditional gingerbread cookie dough. Glue the houses together with royal icing, and decorate away.

7. Gingerbread Cake

This moist cake has only a hint of ginger, which is great for those who like a mild spice taste. If you like your cakes to have flavor impact, double or even quadruple the spices called for. Always do this cautiously, as too much ginger can make a recipe bitter.

6. Gingerbread Icebox Cake

This beautiful and vintage looking cake uses traditional gingerbread cookies. A rich yet light mascarpone cream holds the shape together. You need to let this cake sit for at least 12 hours for the cookies to soften enough to cut.

5. Warm Gingerbread Cake

This lovely cake is packed with spices and delicious molasses flavors. It is served hot, topped with ice cream or apple sauce. Apples might seem like a strange addition, but their subtle tartness and sweetness work beautifully with the ginger flavors.

4. Gingerbread Cake With Buttermilk Syrup

This beautiful cake is made with a bunt pan for easy serving. It’s topped with a light buttermilk syrup, which adds a great flavor contrast to the cake. When using different pan sizes for your cake, always adjust the baking times. Keep an eye on it so it’s not under or over cooked.

3. Gingerbread Biscotti

Biscotti are a great Christmas cookie to make because they are baked twice. This really dries them out and gets that great crunchy texture. It also means they take forever to go stale! We think dipping these cookies in chocolate would be an excellent addition.

2. Pumpkin Gingerbread

This gingerbread is really a ginger “bread”. Made in a loaf pan, this cake textured treat is a great addition to a dessert table. The recipe uses coconut oil, but you could replace it with butter or your choice of oil. Coconut oil is known for its health benefits and has the added benefit of being delicious.

1. Gingerbread Blossoms

These gingerbread cookies have a wonderful soft texture that you will love. To make this unique shape, bake the cookies until just cooked. Then, when you take them out, press into the center of each. This makes a nice little well for you to add jam or chocolate to.

Ginger Cookie Bars

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.

Ginger Bars are chewy cookie bars full of sweet, spiced gingerbread flavor. These rich molasses brown sugar brownie-like bars are perfect Christmas treats!

Chewy, flavorful Gingerbread Cookies meet Brown Sugar Brownies for an easy Cookie Bar Recipe that’s a dream come true for holiday parties and cookie exchanges!


Gingerbread is one of those classic holiday flavors that you can’t imagine not being on a Christmas cookie platter. These delicious holiday bars have all the gingerbread flavor but without all the work. No need to chill, roll out the dough or get out the cookie cutters, to make the perfect holiday dessert.

These easy Ginger Cookie Bars come out so soft and chewy! The molasses along with brown sugar make the bars sweet and moist with the sweetness is balanced out with plenty of warm ginger. The addition of wheat flour makes these a little bit healthier but if you don’t have it on hand, feel free to use all white flour instead.

This recipe for Ginger Bars uses all ground ginger instead of a combination of wintery spices like cloves and cinnamon so the ginger flavor stands out. You can always reduce the ginger and add other warm spices to cut back on the bold ginger taste. If you want more ginger, add some chopped crystallized ginger pieces into your batter.

If you want thinner, shaped Ginger Cookie Bars, bake your dough in a jelly roll pan for about 15-20 minutes. Allow to cool completely before cutting the soft bars with cookie cutters. Or cut the bars, cooked regularly, into triangles and drizzle with White Chocolate Ganache for an easy, beautiful holiday gift.

Ginger Bars are a simple, elegant dessert, but go so well with frosting or other dessert toppings. Serve these Ginger Bars warm with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream or Whipped Cream. Frost your Ginger Cookie Bars with a thick layer of Cream Cheese Frosting and decorate with nuts or red and green sprinkles.

What kind of molasses to use for Ginger Bars?

|Molasses important for the chewiness of these delicious Gingerbread Cookie Bars and the recipe calls for a 1/4 cup for maximum holiday flavor! You want to use dark, unsulfured molasses for the best taste and sticky, sweetness. If you don’t have molasses on hand, or want to cut it down, you can use honey. Simply replace all or some of the molasses with raw honey.
