Maybe I'm the only one, but when I get something that is so excited to tell me how fabulous it is and that it's even guaranteed, I tend to question it. Is it really that great? Why are they trying so hard? Skeptical, that's me ... but in the case of this gingerbread, the guaranteed recipe came from King Arthur Flour, and they should know what they're doing. However, because there are so many gingerbread recipes out there, and many are not so fabulous, I decided to try this one. And it turns out they're right -- the recipe is great. It's light and spicy and not too sweet, accented with bits of crystalized ginger throughout. This is another good use for leftover buttermilk, instead of, say, putting it in your coffee. Ahem.
