First Row-McKenzie. Second row-Quentin Jr.(His sad gingerbread man represents your average North Korean citizen. He loves to study his history). Third row-Madison. And last row-mine.

Gingerbread cookies are a ton of fun!

  • Beat in egg yolk and vanilla.

  • Drop dough by spoonfuls onto cookie sheet (or use a cookie press). If desired, make an indentation in the center with your thumb or other object; fill with preserves, or press candy into center.

Tastes like a sugar cookie, only fluffier.
