Very easy! I never made a gingerbread house from scratch and I had no problem. The dough wasn't difficult to work with at all!!! Thank you!! It made a nice Christmas for us!

This was a very nice tasty cookie, however it needed quite a bit of extra flour to make it workable. My family likes nutmeg, so we also added some fresh ground nutmeg. With the extra flour added, we made free form dough figures for the gingerbread house, like fences and animals. A good idea for trees surrounding the house: use 4 or 5 round cookies in diminishing sizes to make a multi-tiered tree, alternating cookies and icing, and green sprinkles to finish!

This was great. We had a lot of fun decorating the house. The gingerbread walls were very firm. Next time I am going to create my own design, but the instructions given make a very good "first" house. Thanks a bunch! Kate

I really enjoyed this recipe. I had a lot of fun making the gingerbread house. At first, I thought I did something wrong with the dough because it was so soft and moist, but once I started adding some flour and began working with it, the dough was great! I recommend using wax paper for the cutouts. It was easier to get the shapes I wanted. Thanks for the recipe!

I would like to add that you can trim the pieces of gingerbread after they are cooked to ensure uniformity.
