6 collections of sweet and spicy gingerbread recipes – the ultimate Christmas treat!

Old-fashioned gingerbread recipes from Click Americana
So if you’re looking for a treat Christmas-y that you really can taste the party, it’s hard to beat the old-world charm of gingerbread.

While the textures of gingerbread vary – from moist, soft and chewy (but usually still dense enough to use as a construction material in your Christmas crafts) to hard and crunchy (think gingerbread), those iconic warm and spicy flavors will leave you feeling oh-so-very-happy.

Gingerbread ingredients usually include cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves — along with the ginger, of course. Brown sugar and molasses add a rich, caramel-like flavor.

The gingerbread recipes in the collection below cover everything from the traditional gingerbread men to a more modern cake-like confection and gingerbread house inspiration.
