Whenever I eat gingerbread men I always have that voice in my head going ‘nooo don’t eat me, I need that leg!‘ – I think I can blame that one on the character from Shrek.
When I was at the supermarket tonight buying lychees I came across tubs of gingerbread cookie dough for only $2.20! I love baking but don’t have much time at the moment so thought I’d whip em’ up for my work buddies. Coz I’m nice like that. Plus I wanted to wear the cute apron my lil Bro got me for Christmas.
Anyway – thought I would just roll the dough into a cylinder shape and cut it into round cookies. Imagine my excitement when I found a cookie cutter in there! Wahoo! Real gingerbread men cookies! Nom.
So I had a whole heap of fun rolling and cutting the cookies. While they were in the oven I even vacuumed. I’m working on my domestic goddess status you see. Baking and cleaning simultaneously. Basically any mans dream. Except I was wearing clothes under my apron. Don’t want to subject my house mates to that, they put up with enough from me as it is!
Bing! And they’re ready. Holy delicious gingerbread men! I wish I bought 5 buckets!!
