Run, run, run, as fast as you can! You can’t catch me – I’m the gingerbread man!
The gingerbread men that come out of my oven aren’t all that fast, so I can tell you exactly what happens when I catch one: he looses a leg, an arm or, when I start from the top, his head. I’ll bet that the same thing happens to your gingerbread men. I jump started the process with these cookies (they’re sugar cookies, not gingerbread) by taking a few nibbles before decorating. A little bit cute and a little tragic – but that’s just the life of a gingerbread man.
Now, you can buy some very cute cookie cutters that give you this very design – but why spend the money on multiple cookie cutters when you can use just one and add the bite marks yourself? All you need to do is “bite” off an arm here and a leg there, then frost the cookies as you normally would!
