National Days

June 5 National Gingerbread Day

Many people are familiar with the gingerbread house at Christmas time, however, there are some delicious gingerbread bread, cake, bars, biscuit and cookie recipes that are perfect any time of the year. 

The term “gingerbread” originally referred to preserved ginger, later referring to a confection made up of honey and spices.

Sources indicate that in 1444, Swedish nuns were baking gingerbread to ease indigestion.

Chewy Gingerbread Bars

I would like you to meet these Chewy Gingerbread Bars. 

They taste just like a gingerbread cookie…but thicker and chewier and just so darn delicious, you won’t believe it. As an added bonus, they are super quick to put together and only take 12 minutes to bake. Did I say they had a lot going for them, or what!?

Gingerbread cake is one of my favorite ways to make old-fashioned gingerbread because I love the soft texture of the cake, and I love how quick and easy it is to make. Gingerbread cookies always take a lot of time to roll out the dough and to wait for multiple batches to bake (not to mention the disaster that my kitchen always looks like by the time I’m done.

This week we have a gingerbread man lacing activity to share with you. It’s great fine motor practice and a perfect pre-sewing activity (we will be sharing a beginner hand-sewing project shortly)! We also had some fun decorating our gingerbread men afterward.
