I would really like one of those cast iron GB house molds. Please I will be good NEXT year.
Ok another question.
When making Royal Iceing should the eggs be room temp? or does it not matter either way?
This is actually more fun than I thought it would be. And I haven't even started decorating yet.
I am just going to follow the recipe at the end of the gingerbread post. #407 pg 41
The cookies are great baked as well.
Clean up was much faster than the rest of the ordeal, But I had done that once or twice before .
The first ones I rolled too thin so they are kind of like eating really tasty drywall.
Going a little thicker gave it a more bread like texture.
See and I thought I would only ever use molasses for the FF or energy for the chickens
Alice, you might want to try this recipe for the cookie decorating. It doesn't have any raw egg in it and gives such a pretty, sort of glossy look to the cookies. It dries well too so cookies don't stick together when they are stacked on a plate.
Nice job. IMO much more difficult to roll and cut than to use a mold.
