Gingerbread for Summer !

We love our gingerbread cookies around here.  Poor, neglected only gets trotted out in December, but it's so, so good.

How about a summery spin on gingerbread?  It's completely EASY and you won't have to wait for December for your gingerbread fix.

Lemon Cream Gingerbread Cookies

You Will Need:

Make the cookies and let cool.

Mix up some royal icing, flavor with 1/4 teaspoon pure lemon extract and tint with AmeriColor Bright White (if desired).

Top half of the cookies with royal icing. Add yellow sprinkles if you have 'em.

{Or do like I did and spend 30 minutes picking through jars of multi-colored sprinkles for the yellows. THAT would be a good project for your kids when you hear the dreaded "I'm Bored" this summer.}

Stir together 1/2 cup lemon curd (jarred or homemade) with 1/3 cup marshmallow creme.  Adjust the amounts based on how lemon-y you like it.


Plop some filling on the plain cookies and sandwich together.

Don't want to make the filling?  Skip it!  Top the cookies with a squiggle of lemon royal icing and a bit of yellow sanding sugar.  Voila! Gingerbread cookies for summer!
