These 18 Gingerbread Dessert Recipes range from cookies and muffins to cake and actual gingerbread, so you'll have plenty of options to choose from while you're trimming the tree this year. Make a batch of gingerbread men cookies to give out as gifts or leave out for Santa on the big night. A festive gingerbread poke cake is the perfect dessert to make for a holiday party or potluck. And don't get us started on how delicious it will be to wake up to a vanilla-glazed gingerbread muffin on a crisp December morning. These gingerbread recipes will help you deck the halls with Christmas cheer and make your kitchen smell completely irresistible!

Gingerbread Cookies

Who doesn't love gingerbread cookies? They kind of scream, "Christmas" to us and definitely remind us of our childhood. These cookies are perfect for entertaining the little ones on a winter's afternoon. You can bake them together and then let them cool and decorate them with fun frosting and sprinkles. There's also some grown up versions for you, like the Snowy Gingerbread Christmas Tree Cookies and the Twice Baked Gingerbread Biscotti. Enjoy!
