Baking Gingerbread Houses!

As kids we always made milk carton gingerbread houses, but I’ve always wanted to try making a real one. I found this set of gingerbread house cookie cutters with a recipe book at Cost Plus World Market and decided to give it a shot with the kids and their cousin. It took some planning because we needed to bake the dough ahead of time, but overall it was well worth it–the gingerbread pieces held up and stuck together really well, and the kids loved decorating them so much!
