What is Christmas without gingerbread cookies or designs? I love these treats. I know that they are adorable whether you make them into gingerbread men or snowflakes like your cute little cookies. I bet you could do stockings, Santa hats, and much more like bells with your recipe too. I could make a whole batch of different cookies. What a great idea.
