Awesome recipe! I served them standing in a tall crystal vase. Tip: Don't roll the dough too thin or cut the strips too narrow. I used turbinado sugar--great effect! This went great as a finish to a Moroccan dinner. My guests still rave about them.
Hmmmm....mine turned out nothing like "straws". Following the directions exactly, mine turned into burnt little doggy biscuits. I tried again making the dough thicker, but the results were nothing special... just gingerbread strips.
I absolutely love these Gingerbread straws. They are very flavorful and crisp. Perfect with a cup of coffee or tea. They also keep well. People always ask for the recipe.
