I have already baked melomakarona and kourabiedes and now I baked gingerbread cookies!!! These delicious, unique cookies with the spicy-sweet taste. Once in the oven their smell is intoxicating!!!

This year I decided to go a bit further though.. I decided to decorate them with sugar paste!! Yes, yes!! The result was lovely!! So I chose a couple of them to decorate them a bit fancier for experimenting purposes and for a better looking photo for yummy-mommy.
