It's time for the gingerbread people to hop into the oven.
So far, none have jumped off the cookie sheet and run down the street.
One of the best parts of making gingerbread men (and women and kids) is how they make the house smell.
The heavenly spice fragrance is very welcoming to any drop-in guests!
It's not hard to make gingerbread cookies. I find it's best to cut them out on the thick side.
If they get hard, you can always dunk them into coffee.
I decorated quite a few but left plenty for little people to have fun with.
Granted, some of them look like they are related to E.T. , but who cares? They are not enrolling in any gingerbread beauty contests!
There are gingerbread stars and trees, too. (I like the trees the best.)
All the supplies are ready to go, awaiting miniature bakers!
As a matter of fact, there just might be a small army of gingerbread people, trees and stars around here!
They make cute gifts, too.
It's one way to say "Merry (and yummy) Christmas!"
