Gingerbread is a holiday staples in all our families-we love the smell that warms up your home, we love decorating the cookies with loved ones and of course, we love eating them! This version uses honey in place of refined sugars which makes it perfect for us! We recommend pairing with Mulled Mead or a glass of Mabon.
