Panera Bread’s Gingerbread Cookies

Hi there:

Cookie cravers, paddycakers, and bakersmen raise your rolling pins in celebration because November 21st is National Gingerbread Day! In honor of the holiday season Panera Bread is offering their delicious Gingerbread Man cookies starting November 17th for $1.99. These adorable cookie people are dessertilicious stocking stuffers and great for holiday parties.

Panera’s Gingerbread recipe focuses on cinnamon and ginger, rather than nutmeg as is generally called for in traditional European‐style recipes. Their recipe is softer and more enjoyable to the American palette. The Gingerbread Man Cookies are brought to life with all‐natural white icing trim, candy gem buttons and dried currant eyes. These holiday cookies will only stick around till December 24, so be sure to catch them before they runaway!

If you are working on a holiday baking segment, we would love to provide a cookie expert for you. Please let me know if we may book a Gingerbread Man cookie‐making demonstration in‐ studio or in one of our bakery‐cafes with a Panera Bread baking expert.

Thanks and hope to work with you!
