I have several left over gingerbread cookies from a party. Any suggestions on recipes that are simple and use gingerbread crumbs?

Best answer:

Answer by william c
Depends on how many “several” is. If you have enough, you could use the crumbs, to make a crust for a cheese cake.

Or, you could wrap them up and leave them for your mail carrier. :)

    One thing you can do would be to put them in a food processor, grind them up and use them as a substitute for a graham cracker crust for pies.

    Another idea would be to use the gingerbread crumbs as a coating for chicken.

    If there’s anything you might use regular breadcrumbs for, you could probably use the gingerbread crumbs for as well, provided the flavors would go together well. :)

    Heyah i don’t really know how many several is but anyway you could make a cheese cake topping or a chees cake bottom, You could also make a ermm (running out of ideas!) a desert of chocolate gingerbread moose with crumbs mixed into the mixtur and/or sprinkled on top!!! Yummy

    Hope I Helped !!

    Good Luck :D

    Crumble them up and put them over ice cream.

    Or mix the crumbles with a little melted butter and press it into a pie pan for crust on cheesecake.
