When I was a child (1980s) my grandmother used to buy me these small, crunchy gingerbread boy cookies with white icing. They came in a blue and white box I believe. Does anyone remember what they were called and who made them? Do they still exist?
Few things are cozier than a piece of warm gingerbread on a brisk, cold night. The beauty of fresh gingerbread is finding the perfect texture—delicate yet dense—so we add in hearty whole-wheat flour to give this a great base.
