Gluten Free Gingerbread Men
When I was working as a pastry chef, making gingerbread was part of our weekly production schedule. We used to make the most amazing gingerbread houses glued together with chocolate or royal icing. They were so big that you could almost walk through one of the doors and sit down inside them. The cookie dough was pretty durable so it could hold up for about 4 weeks before the walls started caving in and it was made from a base of white flour, butter, eggs, spices and sugar. These days I still love making gingerbread, but in a smaller cookie form and in a much healthier way than the original. They are easy for kids to make and wonderful as presents or Christmas tree decorations.
