Gingerbread Heads

I love December. People start baking and sharing sweets with friends and family … even people that might not normally bake any other time of the year. There is just something about the holidays and baking for others that makes people feel good to give. I like to give fudge, pies, cake balls, cookies… cookies … and more cookies. I don’t really have a favorite kind though. I like my sweets on the smaller side, so I end up with larger numbers. One … more cookies. Two … I could have fun and focus on their faces … oh and three…… less piping and less chances for my icing to look crooked. : ) Ooooh, ginger, cinnamon and cloves.

Can you smell it? Add the spices to your flour … it will make your dough delicious. I don’t have pics of the rest of the ingredients, but we don’t want to look at those anyway. We want cookies. I used a small cookie cutter to make the base for the faces. Little bitty blank canvases.
