We followed up Chocolate Wednesday with Gingerbread Thursday. J and I had so much fun making our gingerbread house that we’ve decided to make this an annual Christmas tradition!
I found a great recipe and instructions at Simply Recipes, and you can find my changes and comments here. Unless you do this on a weekend, it really is a multi-evening project. I mixed up the dough on Tuesday and let it chill over night. I rolled out and baked the pieces on Wednesday, and we put the house together on Thursday.
