This is a classic gingerbread cookie, perfectly cooked and moist.

It does crumble easily, so get a napkin or plate to catch stray pieces.

The snowflake at the center is a crunchy sugar decoration. While cute and technically edible, we don’t recommend eating it. It’s not easy to chew, and the dessert is sweet enough without it.

The giraffe cookie is layered against another cookie covered in sweet icing, making it look like a Christmas tree.
