I fondly remember many winter nights when I was a child that involved warm, moist gingerbread. What I love most about gingerbread is the smell that wafts around the house. It's one of those smells that always recalls happy memories for me.
|Gingerbread with Cream Cheese Frosting|
I used to eat it plain or with powdered suger sprinkled on top, but I've recently been all about the cream cheese frosting.
Do you have a favorite dessert who's smell brings back wonderful memories?
