Expert Tips

If using chocolate chips, cinnamon candies or candy-coated chocolate candies to decorate these cookies, place them on the cookies while warm from the oven so the decorations stick. Add other decorations when the cookies are cool; attach with icing, or use the frosting recipe on the gingerbread cookies label.
