Honey Gingerbread Cookies

12 Days of Christmas Treats- Day 8! Every year at Christmas time, my brothers and I would look forward to my grandma sending us gingerbread men baked with this recipe! It's the best gingerbread cookie recipe I have ever tasted and this year Chloe and I made them together for the first time for her and her little friends to decorate! What a fun (and yummy) tradition to have with my girls!
