They are also so much fun for children to make – just as long as you don’t mind the odd wonky eyed three nosed reindeer…This is the best recipe for gingerbread shapes of any kind, we’ve used it at least a half dozen times this year alone. Easy to make (all in one pot), it doesn’t break up or stick like other recipes Ive used… also very tasty to eat uncooked – so Carter says! It came from Nana Ola’s friend Sheryl… thanks Sheryl!
