Gingerbread House

After spending money on silly little gingerbread house kits every year, I have finally made my own!!! Click on this link to find recipe and template. It was a good beginner’s house. In fact they looked like little bird houses. The trick is to have the house built before giving them to the kids to decorate. I have a friend who makes an elaborate gingerbread house every year with her kids. Last year it was a “nutcracker’s cottage”. This year, she told me that it was going to be a castle. Just give me a couple of years and I may catch up, but for now, I am very happy with my little bird houses. This recipe made 4 houses which was great…kids love having their OWN and not having to share.
