Gingerbread Cutouts

Submitted by: Joyce Guy 
You can roll out gingerbread dough into rectangular sheets for walls, cut out windows, and bake. Same for the roof. When done you can fit them together with icing 'glue' and paint them with colored icing. First decide what size and draw each piece (front, back, ends and roof on paper such as typing or computer paper and fit them together to see how it will look when completed. You can also cut out shingles and 'glue' them in place after the rest is assembled. Use the paper pattern as a guide for cutting each piece out of the dough before you bake it. Decorate with icing and decorative candies.

These cookies are formed by cookie cutters. By using a toothpick to make a hole in the top of the cookie, you can hang them on the tree. You can also make paint out of egg yolks, and food coloring to make them more colorful--use as much food coloring as needed to create desired hue. My girls and I would spend hours making these cookies each Christmas so we could hang them on the tree.
