Easy Thermomix Recipe Christmas Gingerbread Cookies
I think I’ve begun to slip into Christmas mode. My daughter put up the Christmas tree on the weekend and decorated the house. In response, I’ve already begun my Christmas cookie baking routine. Each year I make a few traditional Christmas cookies such as shortbread, biscotti, and gingerbread cookies. I also like to make some simple sweets such as caramel fudge, rocky road and rum balls in the lead up to Christmas.

These Thermomix gingerbread cookies are so simple to make! They would make a great school holiday activity!
The baking isn’t really for Christmas, I usually give it to the kids for school lunches or use it for weekend snacks. I enjoy preparing these treats early because it builds the Christmas excitement.
Last year I made gingerbread men cookies. The cookies were really cute but decorating them neatly was difficult. My icing skills are pretty basic and my patience is very limited, so I wanted something easier! This year I decided to simplify things and make gingerbread cookie ornaments and some gingerbread trees.
The cookies were so easy to make! The gingerbread cookie recipe is one I’ve been using for years. I decided to convert it to a Thermomix recipe. I’m so pleased I finally did the conversion as it took no time at all to whip up a batch of cookies. It took me a few days to get around to icing them but, I’m really pleased with the finished product.
If you want to make these cookies closer to Christmas, don’t forget to pin them so you will be able to find the recipe.
