My little boy has asked for two things for Christmas: that I make a gingerbread house and name place cookies. I did these a few years ago and they obviously made a big impression on him. So sweet that he has asked for things I have made and not toys!
I made this gingerbread house from scratch, my own template and gingerbread. If any one wants instructions or an easy recipe, please leave a comment and I will do a post on it as I make this year's house.
...and the name place chocolate cookies.
This is a fabulous chocolate sugar cookie recipe found here. I ice them with home made royal icing.
My daughter has her flamenco concert tonight and her dress is green and black. They are meant to have a matching flower clip for their hair. We've just made a lovely flower out of the Woolworth's green reusable shopping bag. I love my glue gun!
