My wife and girls really rocked the gingerbread house this year, don’t you think? I’m loving the high facades, snowy landscape, and inhabited interior.
I’ve generally believed that a gingerbread recipe can only be good for one purpose: eating or building, not both. But this year my wife found this recipe which definitely stood up to construction demands, and made for good eating too. And this is very tasty dough if you use pasteurized eggs to allow for safe sampling.
Do you have a favorite gingerbread recipe…or two? I’m curious where others stand on the single-purpose vs double-purpose dough issue. And what have you done to add interest to your gingerbread creations? Please tell me in the comments.
And Merry Christmas everyone. You know that today is only day three of twelve, right?
