Operation Rolling Pin - Gingerbread

And yea verily, the gingerbread was made, and lo, Operation Rolling Pin is no more.

Lessons in cookie cutting optimisation were learnt:


I rolled the dough out a bit too thin, so my gingerbread is really more like ginger biscuits.

There were stars and trees and angels and santa shapes:


They cooked (perhaps a bit too long) and are indeed quite delicious - the perfect accompaniment to a cup of tea.


These will remain undecorated because I am a menace to society once I get my hands on royal icing and a piping bag.

Oh, I like the sound of operation rolling pin indeed. Your cranberry kipferin look delish. I'm always lacking the Christmas spirit [TM]. Good on you! Hope all is well in your neck of the woods. We are all moving to Ghana early february, so should you and Big Red feel like a holiday in West Africa (as I know its on the top of almost everyone's bucket list [ha!]), please visit! Love C x
