Ready or not, the holidays are here!
I was talking to my husband over the weekend and we decided that we are going to do our best to “simplify” this year . . . we probably won’t be sending out Christmas cards, our schedules are going to revolve around spending time with family, and our Elf on the Shelf probably won’t be making his grand appearance.
I just really want to keep the focus on our family and the spirit of the season. One thing that won’t be any different is baking in the kitchen . . . some of my best holiday memories revolve around being with my mom and sisters in the kitchen and I want the same thing for my kids!
However, these gingerbread cookie bars definitely simplify the cookie-making process! Instead of having to cut out tons of gingerbread men, you get all the delicious gingerbread flavor in an easy-to-make bar cookie. They are chewy and soft and packed full of holiday flavor. Plus, they are easy enough that your kids can help you make them!
So, if you are looking to simplify your holiday season . . . start here. 🙂
These bars can be topped with a dusting of powdered sugar or our favorite cream cheese frosting!
