    Cookie-A-Day – Day 10: Gingerbread People

    Well, after the last 3 cookie recipes being flops, I finally had a success!  It is about stinkin’ time!  Since I was feeling a little insecure about my baking, I decided to use a recipe from Carol Fenster’s 1,000 Gluten-free Recipes to make these cookies.  Carol’s recipes have always worked very well for me, so I went back to the tried & true.  I was not disappointed!  I wish I could share the recipe with you, but it is copyrighted.  You can probably get the cookbook from your library & try some of the recipes out if you are unsure of the purchase, but let me tell you that this is one amazing cookbook (no, I am not getting paid to say that).  The pizza crust that I raved about here is also one of Carol’s recipes.  :) 

    Look…..they worked!


    The army:


    Once the cookies cooled, I whipped up a quick frosting/icing & we got busy. 


    1-2 cups powdered sugar (depends on how much frosting you want to make)

    1/2 – 1 tsp vanilla (again, depends on how much sugar you use; start with less & taste – you can always add more)

    1-3 TBSP milk (start with 1 TBSP, stir and add more milk until you get the desired consistency)


    My little helper – concentrating so hard:



    Jon’s handiwork:







    Up tomorrow: Lemon Cornmeal Cookies – YUM!  I can’t wait.  I am well stocked with parchment paper, so I hope to avoid future disasters!
