You Can't Catch Me

I'm not a gingerbread man!

Last year I colored the dough when I made these guys. The dough was brown so they weren't flooded with icing, only the details were iced. Easy.

When Joan and I were doing our baking planning, (yes, there is a method to our madness) she mentioned that people were disappointed that the cookies were sugar and not gingerbread--they looked like gingerbread. This year we were afraid that if we made real gingerbread that the other cookies may taste like gingerbread when plated together. That's why these aren't true gingerbread men, just iced sugar cookies. Not as easy.
