General Gingerbread - Baking Spice Blend
Piernicki (Pierniczki), are Polish Gingerbread cookies. In Germany, they are called Lebkuchen or Pfefferkuchen. In English, they are called Gingerbread Cookies.
What gives Piernicki cookies their distinct flavor is the use of chocolate in the gingerbread spice. We decided to create a spice that blends the flavors of gingerbread, with the uniqueness of cocoa powder.
Here in America, our founding father, George Washington played a part in the gingerbread story. His mother, Mary Ball Washington, is said to have served her gingerbread to the French General Marquis de Lafayette. Her famous recipe came to be known as Lafayette Gingerbread. Boston Spice combined the best of both worlds together to create our General Gingerbread spice. We combined cocoa powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and other spices to make this baking spice, the traditional Piernicki way. Even George's mother would agree, our General Gingerbread spice blend gets a five-star rank.
There are many ways to use our General Gingerbread baking spice:
- Add some to whipping cream and make your own gingerbread whipped cream
- Mix some into your coffee or hot chocolate,
- Bake some great gingerbread
- Make your own General Gingerbread ice cream
- Make that gross tasting protein shake into a drink that you will not be able to put down.
- Add to a smoothie
- Bake a General Gingerbread loaf or some cookies or both
- Want the best tasting waffles or pancakes? Add a teaspoon or two to your batter
- Toss some into your brownie or cake mix
- Make a great Irish cream beverage
- Sprinkle some into your apple pie and bake to flavor greatness
- Its uses are just about endless.
If your recipe calls for a bunch of different baking spices, just substitute General Gingerbread for the total amount of your recipe's spices.
