Gingerbread man cookies

Christmas is approaching soon and we "experiment" baking our first batch our gingerbread man cookies last weekend.

Both girls had a ball of time playing with the flour and dough and messing up my whole kitchen. Time to make the dough was 30 minutes (excluding the baking time & time to decorate the cookies) and I took one hour to clean up both girls and the kitchen!!! Flour were stuck to their hair, face and hand and everywhere too! Eeew.....

Anyway, we had a great time and the cookies turned out to be quite nice and yummy! Love it. Will share the recipe in another post.

We also packed the cookies into individual plastic bag and tied with ribbon. Look nice right?

Gave the first batch of our cookies to my family members and in-laws too!

Very cute and delicious looking bakes. It's nice having two daughters who love to help you in baking..my son only likes to eat the cake mix and the sprinkles. Have totally no interest in helping me.
