    Notes

     

    HOW TO PACK THE MIX UP AS A GIFT

    Get your FREE Gingerbread Spice Mix gift tag printable and your FREE Perfect Gingerbread Recipe printable!
    They are big and high quality images so you can print them according to your needs! For the pictures I printed my gift tags 9x on one sheet of paper and the recipe 4x on a second sheet.
    You can then tie the gift tag to the packed up spice mix and fold up the recipe, clip it behind the gift tag and you’re good to go!

    HOW LONG THE SPICE MIX KEEPS

    This keeps basically forever, it just loses its strength.
    If the spice mix is kept in an airtight container, I’d estimate the quality isn’t affected for around 3 months.
    After that you might need to use a larger quantity for your recipes.

    WHAT TO DO WITH THE SPICE MIX (APART FROM BAKING COOKIES)

    Honestly, I use gingerbread spice for everything during the holiday season.
    I love it stirred into oatmeal or yogurt. It’s also pretty amazing in gingerbread pancakes or gingerbread muffins!
