Delicate Pink Heart Gingerbread Hearts

These have hopefully made it to their destinations by now. I was in a Pink Christmas Ornament Swap and gave each girl one of these and they each received a pink feather wreath with "Fa la la la la" ribbon on it also.

Gingerbread Garland

This is a fun way to give cookies to friends, especially the ones who love to decorate for the holidays. I have a feling this will go on Kirsten's fireplace mantle.

Gingerbread Man

It's officially the time of year when my husband comes home from work and exclaims......"Mmmm whatcha baking?" Gingerbread more than likely!!! I can't think of a Christmas in my adult years where I haven't baked these little gems!!! They fill the house with a delightful aroma and I always use extra cinnamon!!!
Recipe coming soon....
