The lengthy celebration of Jesus’s birthday at our house starts traditionally on the second Sunday of December with the waste of otherwise perfectly good ingredients in the shape of a too-hard-to-chew cookie house.
This year I went to town and tried to replicate our actual house in gingerbread. Of course, the key word here is simplification.
With the remaining dough I made also some regular houses,
and invited some friends to help decorate and help eat the candy.
