Bake Gingerbread Men.
Gingerbread men are not only tasty cookies but they're fun to decorate. Much like gingerbread houses, you can get as creative as you like.
Use the Gingerbread Cookie Recipe, allowing enough time for the dough to set then cool after baking.
Get all your decorating supplies ready while you're waiting so you can jump right into decorating when the cookies are cooled.
