These Gingerbread Cookie Bars are an incredibly soft and chewy Christmas dessert. These are a great alternative to making individual gingerbread men. These cookie bars are great by themselves with a little dusting of powdered sugar or with cream cheese frosting on top.

I was so excited when the Six Sisters asked me to share a recipe out of the Six Sisters’ Stuff new cookbook! Their book, 12 Days of Christmas with Six Sisters’ Stuff, is packed full of holiday recipes that are totally doable and incredibly tasty.
I had so much fun going through and bookmarking the things I wanted to make. I’ve already gifted this to some of my friends because if you’re friends with me, you love food.
I immediately was drawn to these gingerbread bars. I don’t think the pictures do them justice. They are so chewy, probably due to the molasses, and full of spices. They tasted just like gingerbread men but WAY better.
I loved that they were soft but still cut really well. Honestly, they didn’t need frosting. All by themselves, they are a treat.
You can definitely add cream cheese frosting to make them super decadent but it does calm down the spice flavor when you do that which may be a good thing or a bad thing depending on what you prefer. The batter comes together quickly and is pressed into a 9×13 pan. After only 15 minutes they are done. Seriously. I mean seriously. Delish. These are my new favorite holiday treat.
