Silly Gingerbread Men

As prepared by Gourmet Mom,

One of my very favorite things about the holidays is the COOKIES! Everyone loves a great cookie, and gingerbread men top the list of my personal favorites. However, no one in our family likes to be too traditional, so we changed these Silly Gingerbread Men a little bit and the results were quite fun.

Gingerbread Cut-out Cookies



My kids are always trying to sneak nibbles while we’re baking, and it inspired me to make these funny gingerbread men. I’m sure if you put one or two on top of your holiday goodie plates they’ll be a hit! I know I'd laugh if I got some.

The best part is that these little guys are a snap to make with Betty Crocker Gingerbread Cookie mix! I’m a fan of soft gingerbread, and the Betty Crocker mix makes perfect, soft gingerbread cookies.

Simply make up your cookie mix, cut into regular gingerbread shapes and place on a baking sheet. Using a pointed knife, cut off a leg, arm, or head using zig-zag cuts (so it looks like it was bitten off). They’ll look very jagged on the pan but the line will soften when baked.
