Hello Date Lady Lovers! It’s Harmony here, I’m an account rep for our amazing clients in the Rocky Mountain and NW region. Even though I’m mostly on the phone or emailing clients when I’m in the office, sometimes I take a moment to sneak away and do some baking, especially around the holidays.

This recipe is one of my favorites because the Date Lady Pure Date Syrup adds a playful wink of sweetness to the dense gingerbread cookies without being over-the-top.

I adapted the cookie and frosting recipe from Detoxinista, which uses simple, primal-friendly ingredients …. because when you eat an entire batch of cookies in one setting you want them to be pretty good for you! Seriously, double this recipe. You will thank me later 🙂

For some extra flair, use a cookie cutter to create your favorite seasonal shapes. And trust me, you don’t want to forget the frosting! It’s great straight out of the bowl … not that I would do such a thing.

You know what? Go ahead and double the icing recipe too, who are we kidding? Try these at home and tag us on Facebook or Instagram for a chance to be featured on the blog! #DateLady #DateLadyLover

Are you ready to get started?!
