these are true 1. You love ginger 2. You don’t have time to make ginger bread
cookies because they take longer to roll, cut, and decorate 3. You like

Special Baking Tips for Ginger Shortbread Cookies
Glaze is thick. Drizzle it onto shortbread to make it easier to cover the surface evenly.
Cut shortbread with a long knife, rather than a paring knife, pressing it down into the bars. Do not use a sawing motion or edges of cookies will be ragged.
