Some of you may already know, but I am a huge anime fan! With the final season of Attack On Titan streaming this anime season, I just knew I needed to do something special. We have been counting down the days for the season to begin, rewatching past seasons and waiting (impatiently) for it to arrive. So, to ring in the season, here comes some seriously tasty, warm and spiced gingerbread cookies shaped like our favourite Scouts! Another addition to our Geek With Me series.
These gingerbread cookies are easy to make, have the perfect texture, are bursting with delicious spices, and aren’t too sweet. They are a great cookie to add to your repertoire, especially during the winter season. Plus, they were really fun to decorate! Just choose your colors, maybe even find some sprinkles?! You can design the cookies however you want to fit any mood or theme! A kind warning, the dough is addictingly good, it will take a lot of self-control to avoid just eating it all before actually making your cookies!
Growing up, we didn’t decorate cookies like this in my house and so I am definitely inexperienced. It’s not easy to decorate with royal icing. I’m definitely not good at it yet but I am looking forward to learning and practicing! I have so much respect for the talented cookie artists out there! I made my own template for the Survey Corps logo which I cut out with a knife to get the perfect shape since I didn’t have a cookie cutter that was perfect. I then piped out the logo with the thicker icing and honestly, I am so happy with how they came out!
Of course, I then decided to make proper little gingerbread men, so I ended up with a bunch of little members of the Scouts Regiment. You can see them in all their uniformed glory (view of them from behind with their capes on and ready to scout beyond the wall). I have to say, when I took my first bite out of one of them, I totally felt like a titan gobbling up humans! It was so funny, but I did kind of feel guilty for a moment when I realized I was the bad guy eating my favourite characters in the show… But oh well, the cookies are just too yummy!
