the gingerbread man

Posted by Picasa

Do you have a child that just loves to help you in the kitchen, or is at the point where they can start baking on their own. I have a very cute and simple recipe to have fun with.
I use a special gingerbread pan, but you can try your hand at carving this simple shape if you can't find the pan. Great snow day project!!!!!
