The perfect man

Run, run as fast as you can
You can’t catch me, I’m the Gingerbread Man.

I decided to try making gingerbread man cookies, and they were surprisingly easy to make. I’d never worked with gingerbread before, and the dough proved to be the greatest test for my mixer so far. It actually slowed down when trying to mix in the flour. Talk about some thick dough!

By the time the cookies were done I was covered in flour and smelled like molasses. But the tiny, tasty men were worth the effort!

Here are some pics from my cookie making adventure. There are more pictures on our photo site (if you haven’t had enough already!).

The recipe is from Betty Crocker: Gingerbread Cutouts

  1. These are adorable. You amaze me with your “Martha Stewart” abilities. You certainly didn’t get that from your mama!

  2. Aww thanks! Decorating the cookies was not as fun as I thought it would be. So I decided to go with the modern minimalist look for most of them.
