Christmas Cookies
December 12, 2011



GingerbreadmenIt was since I saw the first Shrek movie that I wanted to bake some gingerbreadmen, I bought online the gingerbread cookie cutters, and this year I finally baked them.


Gingerbreadmen can be decorated with frosting or sugar decorations, but I choose to bake simple cookies for breakfast.
