- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 tbs. ground cinnamon

- 1 1/2 tsp. ground ginger

- Add in the dry ingredients. Mix just until everything is combined.
- Divide the mixture in two and wrap each half in plastic wrap. Place in the fridge overnight.
- The next day remove the dough from the fridge, preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and line multiple baking sheets with some parchment paper.
- Using a clean work surface sprinkle down some flour and place down one piece of dough at a time. Roll the dough out to about 1/4 inch thickness.
- Using whatever cookie cutters you’d like cut out your cookies and place them on your baking sheet.
- Bake 8-12 minutes or until fully cooked through.
- Let cool and ENJOY!
If you’d like to frost your cookies using the icing I used just beat together 3 egg whites and 1 cup of powdered sugar and whip until the mixture is glossy and stiff. Frost your cookies and they ENJOY!
