25 Days of Baking: Day 16
Gingerbread man cookies are a Christmas tradition. I tend to have fun with these little guys, the gingerbread man with the broken leg always finds his way onto the cookie plate. The icing stitches probably helps. The reindeer at the top of the plate is in fact an upside down gingerbread man! I was eager to try that trick when I saw it on Pinterest. (Can you tell how easily entertained I am with icing?)
Anyway, this recipe for gingerbread man cookies guarantees a chewy cookie with plenty of spiced flavor as well as a simple icing for easy decoration.
