Gingerbread Men

“…you can’t catch me, I’m the gingerbread man.”

Max's civics club had a Christmas party on their December schedule.  The plans were: food, gift exchange, sledding, and watching “It’s a Wonderful Life”.  Since everyone was bringing food, I asked him, “What do you want to bring?”  He responded, “Gingerbread men…of course.”  I was secretly a little lot delighted that gingerbread men meant so much to him, since I’ve probably made an army of them in his lifetime of Christmases.

The party was today.  There was no snow, so no sledding happened.  They decided to skip the movie, in favor of multiple games of capture the flag, played in and out of the woods.  The gift exchange was well-received.  And of course, there was the all-important FOOD.

The platter was clean when we brought it home tonight.  The recipe is in the Betty Crocker cookbook.


  1. They looked too pretty to eat Kate!

  2. A large group of young people (mostly growing boys) didn't seem to think so. Haha! But thank you!
