Turns out my friend Kelsey and I are capable of making mini gingerbread houses. I may or may not have broken my old mixer in the process but that’s okay. I think it was worth it. We used the Joy of Cooking gingerbread recipe and were happy with the result.
To make the houses, print the pattern below on card stock and cut out. Trace the pattern with a knife onto the dough. To put the houses together we cheated and used store bought icing. I put the icing in a ziplock bag and snipped off the corner. Then we carefully assembled the pieces with a little trial and error.
With the left-over dough I finally had an excuse to use my Muji Alphabet cookie cutters and make a few Christmas tree ornaments for friends.
