The Eleventh Day of a Crafty Christmas: Cookie Fun
Christmas Cookies are a must for any house hold this time of year,
and they are so much fun to make.
This Ginger Bread Recipe is used in our house
[mostly for Ginger Bread Men and Ladies]
at least once every few months so
I know they will get eaten and dipped in
melted chocolate makes them so special.
They are super yummy and look great to either
share with visitors or use as a gift.
I have found this particular recipe to be
great for kids as it is not too spicy.
Also I found these great labels to
download and print off to decorate
your home-made cookie gifts.
