Romina Rasmussen, owner of Salt Lake City's Les Madeleines bakery, makes these stunning holiday cookies. “Some gingerbread cookie recipes have chocolate in the dough, but using chocolate glaze offers an opportunity to decorate,” says Rasmussen—which, although a bit painstaking, produces cookies so lovely it’s worth the effort. The glaze retains an appealing softness even after it’s set, so serve the cookies on a platter—in a single layer—to preserve their prettiness.
