I mean, we have gingerbread houses, gingerbread men, and gingerbread cookies. But have you ever wondered about regular old gingerbread?

I’ll tell you, it’s right here. You need to look no further. Oh I can practically smell it through my screen…Your whole house will smell magically of the the holidays as it’s cooking. It’s perfect. Especially if you top it off with a fresh dollop of whipped cream! Nothing beats home made whipped cream.  You can also try it with this 5 minute Pumpkin Whipped Cream! This is also best served warm, then the whipped cream gets kind of melty all over it and it’s just a hot mess.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″ enable_animation=”true” animation=”flip-in” boxed=”true” column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″][vc_column_text][printfriendly]
