This festive gingerbread spice mix is perfect for anything from cookies, cakes through ham glazes and lattes. Save, or better yet, make a batch and store in a tupperware container in the pantry. It will come in handy!
It’s no secret I love to make my own spice mixes – they are cheaper this way, you can adjust the spice level to your liking and, of course, there is no other stuff added to them.
I’ve recently made a delicious salad herb mix which I will share with you soon, but first, it’s the Festive Gingerbread Spice Mix I bet you will love!
