First and Last Gingerbread Making

I think I got this great idea to make gingerbread men because Owen loved Gingy from the Shrek movies. I had never made gingerbread anything and thought I'd like to try. Well, I am happy with the results, but I'll never do it again! The sticky dough is full of molasses and needs to be refrigerated/freezed throughout the process. I won't belabor the point, just know it's no easy task if you decide to take it on. Then I realized I was no good at decorating, but in the end, our men have character!

The other good news is that they taste really good!

Merry Christmas!

Someone else who doesn't enjoy cutting and baking cookies! LOL It definitely helps to chill the dough and a cooler work area helps too. Recipes differ as well and some are easier to work with. You did an awesome job! Well done and those cookies look delicious!

They do look good!

I have been putting off the Christmas cookie cutting and decorating because i have not felt up to the challenge either.
