Editor's Note

Guilty as charged – I love eating raw cookie dough. Gingerbread is a particular favourite of mine and, come Christmas time, I usually only manage to turn half the dough into baked treats, while the rest gets eaten, sliver by sliver, straight from the fridge or freezer.

We wanted to create show-stopping desserts that put a new spin on traditional festive flavours, and the gingerbread dough ice-cream sandwiches (dipped in a crush of praline) is just the start.
