But seriously, the time with the family can't be beat. We are all in it together and nobody leaves till all the cookies are baked...except for me since I live out of state and my plane departs on Thursday at 1pm.
I chose to share our family Gingerbread recipe for two reason:
1. It's delicious.
2. The recipe is great for cookies and walls (for gingerbread houses).
One night some friends and I took on the task of making a gingerbread house...in the form of Luke Skywalkers' boyhood house on Tatooine. Luckily this recipe makes an incredibly large batch because we ate as much as we decorated with; dipped in buttercream frosting we couldn't resist!
Whether cookies or architecture - everybody loves gingerbread. Don't hesitate making these fat and happy delicious gingerbread cookies today.
Fat and Happy Food Blog Tips and Techniques: Our tradition is to not overwhelm the cookies with decorations. Add a few sprinkles of sugar flakes just to catch the light.
