Little gingerbread people

What could be more charming for a holiday party of little children than a platter of sweet little gingerbread people all bundled up in colorful red & green scarves to brave the cold?

I made this darling little batch of gingerbread men for my son's holiday party today.  Their sweet smiles and happy expressions are sure to invite oodles of giggles and joy to the kids.

Imagine the tiny hands of the kids clasping onto one of these cheery fellows...

With fruit leather scarves, cinnamon candy noses, royal icing smiles, and chocolate chip eyes...

it's an explosion of sweet candy and yummy spice sure to please even the most temperamental toddler!


  1. Hello there,
    Just wanted to pop in and say those cookies are so adorable...and I bet they are yummy,too. I love gingerbread and I love cookies,(I am still a kid when it comes to cookies.)
    I hope you have a wonder-filled Christmas.
