These last few days I've been putting together our gingerbread house and making gingerbread men . With all the things we have made a habit to do for this season, there is nothing better for me than to decorate cookies. I have so much fun decorating gingerbread men, and it keeps me busy doing what I like, especially when it is to give as a gift!
The cookies are very easy to make and decorate. All you need is a gingerbread man cutter, your favorite cookie recipe and royal icing. There is nothing complicated to decorate it the traditional way. I made a video of less than two minutes for you to see and get inspired to make a few in the next weeks.
Need some cookies recipes:
Sugar Cookies (Traditional)
Decorating Chocolate Cookies
Gingerbread Cookies Recipe
Notes: To add color to the traditional cookie dough, you just have to add a few teaspoons of cocoa, or a few drops of color of your choice. These will look nice in red or green, maybe pink for for a baby girl! I am stuck on the traditional, but is is always good to try out new things, especially for kids!
