This year we decided that to switch things up by investigating Brisbane’s best gingerbread. We’re on the hunt for a spicy, gingery taste with vanilla and nutmeg – that distinctly “Christmas” taste. It might come in bars, cookies, cakes or loaves – who knows!

We still love the fruit mince pie and will continue to share interesting findings, but 2019 is about the gingerbread.

On with the hunt!

Flour & Chocolate’s (Morningside) gingerbread stars. These 5g star-shaped cookies have a great texture – buttery, shortbread-esque. They are not too sweet, and are firm without being hard. Good for families with varied tastes, but I’m looking for ginger or spice flavour going on.
