Foodie Friday - Martha Stewart's Gingerbread

One of our holiday traditions has become these giant Gingerbread Snowflakes (this is the recipe I use).
Everyone loves them and they're not at all difficult to make.

Here's all the gingerbread finished and drying....You can see the size of the snowflakes compared to the trees which are quite large themselves. I made some smaller snowflakes as well for those who aren't into sharing their cookies!!



This giant cookie measures 7 inches across so there's enough to share with someone special.
This photo is just before I shook off the excess sugar.


How's your Christmas baking coming along?  Do you bake or do you buy your Christmas cookies? 

Don't forget...today is the last day of the May Arts/ Graphic 45 Blog Week.  Be sure to stop in and see what Friday's Design Teams have in store for you.

YUM!!! I wish I could grab a handful through the 'puter screen! And, yes, I do bake...gingerbread men, pinwheels, cakeballs, Russian tea cakes, and a couple others.

Hi Friend! I have been crazy busy and gone too, so trying to play a little catch up! Hope all is well your way. These cookies look yummy. Maybe I will get to bake some tomorrow!
