Children's Gingerbread House
It turned out pretty good, the last gingerbread house I made fell apart upon completion and tasted too wicked for me. But this recipe is pretty tasty. I did make a few changes, but it was mainly becsuse I ran out or didnt have ingredients. First, I 1 1/2 the recipe so I'd have some for cookies too. I only had a tablespoon of ginger instead of 1.5 for my adjustment. And I did not have a lemon to zest, but did have lemon juice, so I added just the adjusted amount. I added some cinnamon and nutmeg to make up for the missing ginger, and I did have to add a good amount of flour, as everyone else mentioned. I baked the house pieces for 20 minutes to stiffen them up but the cookies for only 10. Surprisingly though, the house is still quite soft after being out for several days and is starting to get eaten now that the cookies are gone. I did use a different frosting recipe (2 egg whites, 1/3 tsp. cream of tarter, and 3 cup powdered sugar), only because I've used it before with great results. The recipe as is I'd give 4 stars, but after my tweaks, I'll definitely make it again.
