Children's Gingerbread House

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2012
I didn't do lemon zest and I used my own recipe for the icing. I'd just like to say, I don't think it's fair to complain about a recipe when the instructions were clearly not followed if you needed to add anything extra. The dough was easy to work with since I allowed it to set in the fridge for an hour like the recipe says. I know it would have needed way more flour had I not done that. Sifting the flour after measuring it probably helped as well. I baked mine for 7 minutes, then trimmed the walls and roof back to the correct shape(I also cut out doors and windows half way through baking), and baked it for another 7 minutes. I assembled the house after about 45 minutes of setting and it was just fine(probably because I overcooked it but I was in a bit of a hurry so that was intentional). You can roll it out fairly thin (I wish I had rolled mine thinner) because it raises quite a bit and it's a very sturdy cookie. This was an all day project so if you plan on doing this with young kids the house should be constructed and ready to decorate ahead of time. I made mine with my 7 year old from start to finish and we decorated it right after sticking it together because I didn't want her to have to wait. I admit that was risky.

Spelt Noodles

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2012
The dough mixed really well in my kitchenaid mixer. It's much more sticky compared to semolina and wheat so I had to dust it with lots of flour while I rolled it out. I used the pasta roller attatchment and it worked just fine. It's sweeter than the other pastas I've made so adding salt is a good idea. I'm making it again soon.
