Gingerbread Trees with Lemon Icing
If you've never had gingerbread and lemon together, you are missing out. I love fresh gingerbread with lemon curd, and I wanted to try the combination in a cookie for the holidays. I had seen a gingerbread tree cookie recipe on Martha Stewart's website, where she had these elegant lines of lemon icing with the clear sanding sugar, so I copied the idea!
I used Bakerella's gingerbread cookie recipe, because I originally planned to make the cute snowman heads. I deemed them too time-intensive, this time around. (They are SO CUTE though, please click on snowman heads to check them out!).
Since Martha gave me the idea, I used her lemon icing recipe. These were a big hit! Definitely the best cookie recipe of the 2011 season.
