gingerbread cookies

We had a Cookiepalooza (a cookie contest for those of you who don't know) at work around the holidays and I decided to make traditional gingerbread cookies.

This was two years ago... so I don't have a lot of pictures. All I can remember is that I used a Martha gingerbread recipe and also learned to outline the cookies with a stiff royal icing and then pour a runnier version into the outline to get the smooth surface.

I also experimented with the food coloring to get muted Martha-like colors. I thought the snowmen were the cutest... and they tasted ok too.
