What began as something fun and tasty, became one of our family’s most anticipated Christmas traditions.
Today we continue to mix the dough, roll it out, and firmly press the cookie cutter into the dough to create the cutest little cookie. Then, using a pin, we push a tiny hole at the top of his head. After he is baked, we insert an ornament hanger into the hole and hang him on the tree. Not just one—dozens!
Gingerbread men make yummy treats for cookie swaps, table decorations, and gifts too.
What’s your favorite memory? Tradition? Perhaps you can start a new one today. You never know…your tradition may become your legacy.
