Actually, I like cookie everything when it comes to gingerbread.
My Aunt Majlis used to bake barrels of cookies every year and always sent us round tins of pepparkaken, crisp little Swedish ginger cookies. I liked them, especially dunked in milk, but I love thick, soft gingerbread, and this is the time of year one might actually find some without having to bake from scratch.
So I’ll keep an eye on Santa’s cookie plate and tell him that I have dibs on any gingerbread.
Whether or not gingerbread is involved, may your Christmas be as magical as those of our childhoods. Check out this Christmas morning past for my sister and me. That’s the year I received my guaranteed-to-burn-your-fingers-on-the-hot-metal View Master slide projector that I absolutely adored. You can see it sitting bottom left near my new Lamb Chop pajama bag.
