Christmas Gingerbread Men
Passed to your plate by Emily Hamilton
It wasn’t the holidays at the Hamilton household until we had put up the tree, made (and decorated) gingerbread cookies and watched Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (I’m talking the 1964 made-for-tv, claymation version … the ONLY version). Learning to make and decorate these delicious cookies was like a rite of passage in my family, but the title ‘gingerbread men’ is used loosely … my siblings and I prided ourselves on the assortment of cookie-cutters we had – from snowmen to stars and everything in between. The best part of this recipe is the decorating so don’t rush it – block out a few hours, find a plethora of cutters and toppings and make a night of it (Rudolph optional…)!
