Guest Blogger Monday: Gingerbread People!

This week, Jessica Cottrell continues her rhapsody on gingerbread creations. Last week, we learned how to make mini gingerbread houses, and these look fun too!

Our October snow may have come and gone here in the Northeast, but here are some wintry treats that won’t melt.  We read all manner of Gingerbread themed books here (our very favorite being the Jim Aylesworth version, in case inquiring minds wanted to know).  But be it boy, girl, baby, or family, we are way into these fast moving treats in my house and since I had some leftover dough I decided to try Gingerbread Snow people.  This. Was. So. Easy.

You need three unbaked dough pieces of Immaculate Baking Company Gingerbread Cookie Dough for each snow person.  Cut one dough piece in half.  Take one half and one whole piece, roll it into a ball and place on cookie sheet.  Take remaining whole piece and roll into ball and place roughly 3/4 inch away from first piece.  Now roll up the half piece of dough you have leftover and place it about 1/2 inch from the second piece.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 8-10 minutes.

Constructing your people

Unlike his literary counterparts, our Frosty little buddies have no feet so it’s pretty safe to bet they will stay in the kitchen.  About a minute after removing them from the oven, I gave our men eyes in the form of upside down white chocolate chips, but I left them otherwise naked so the kids could have another activity after their houses were finished.  But they looked so tasty laying on the counter, and I was feeling rather fox-like and, well, the kids got whole houses, right?  Maybe I’ll buy another package so they can try some, too.

Leave the decorating for the kids!
