No Christmas is complete without a killer Gingerbread recipe and this is that recipe. They are so flipping cute, and the fragrance has filled the kitchen all day and now you can smell them still even though they are baked and under a dome. YUM. I love this recipe. It has depth of flavour. If you are going to have a gingerbread, then yes please, let's taste the ginger! Thank goodness for doTERRA oils. They will give you a kick in the mouth that dry spices cannot deliver. If you wish to leave them out, do so, but trust me. You need the oils.

Tip out dough onto a floured silpat mat and hand knead into a disc. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 170°C and line several baking trays with baking paper.
Working with half the dough at a time, place dough onto a floured bench and roll out to your desired thickness.
Cut out shapes with cookie cutters and place onto prepared trays.
Bake for 8 minutes, turn trays around and bake for another 2 minutes or until done to your liking.
Once cookies are completely cooled, make the glaze by pouring boiling water into a bowl, sprinkle gelatin on top and stir till dissolved. Add sugar and orange oil and stir till dissolved.

Decorate with royal icing as you please.
If you are not a doTERRA oils fan yet, this may get you there. But if not, just use the spices as suggested and some orange zest to replace the orange oil.
