    Chef floWer's Note:

    These were made last year for the Zaar gingerbread contest ( and it's been a year since I got around to posting them. You may decorate them as you please or even leave them plain. I wrapped a few individually in clear wrap last year and gave a few away as little gifts. Recipe does not include 10 minutes chilling time.

      Update: I have made this recipe several times now, and recently at a baking activity class, everybody loved it! Dec 15, '07: DD LOVED it and so did we! She helped me make the dough which was easy to work with.. and she helped me cut the cookies out. I left it plain since I didn't have the time (and I was being lazy :)). Thank you, Chef floWer, for sharing this wonderful recipe!

      These produce a lovely textured cookie. The flavour is light...perfect for children who arn't that keen on a strong ginger taste. We used choc chips for eyes and red & green M & M's for buttons. They are easy enough for kids to make with a little assistance.
