Gingerbread Yoga People & Cookbooklette Winners!

This week, I decided to make cookies for all of my yoga classes. I teach Monday-Friday, so that's a lot of cookies! When it came to deciding what kind of cookie to make, there was really only one choice: Gingerbread Yogis! Last year I bought one set of these excellent yoga cookie cutters, and I loved them so much that this year I bought the other set - so now I have TEN different yoga poses! 


As you can see, they are incredibly super cute. For the cookies, I used my favorite old standby recipe from "Joy of Cooking," only slightly veganized. So far, they've been a big hit with everyone! Also, it's a really easy recipe to crank out, because I made a bunch of batches of the dough on the weekend, and it keeps in the fridge for at least 8 days. So, every day I just pull out one or two batches of dough, cook up a sheet of ginger yogis (and they only bake for 8 minutes!) - and I'm good to go. Very easy!


I also made a big batch of gluten-free gingerbread people - because I know some of my students are GF. I used Mandee's recipe from this post, and they've been a big hit too! (I also made some of the xgfx ones as regular gingerbread people for my gluten-free cousin).

  5. I remember your adorable cookies from last year! So super cute! And what a good idea to make the dough at once but to do the cookies in batches. When you only have to do a few at a time, it doesn't seem like such a big project. There are some lucky yogis in the world today! :)

    I'm so excited that I won a copy of your awesome cookbooklette! What a sweet early Christmas surprise!! :)

  11. Dadgum, Amey! These are the best ever!

  12. Seriously, cutest gingerbread people ever! The cutters are ingenious, but it's really your icing skills that bring them to life. It wouldn't be nearly as successful a design without those perfect outlines.

    And yay, yay, yay! Can't wait to pour over the latest zine.
