You Can't Catch Me......

yes, these are meant to be gingerbread men. They look evil. Actually, I *know* they are evil.

 

These little.. treasures... took me the better half of an afternoon to bake... and my already sore shoulder is almost immobile now.

 

First off, the recipe sucked. I don't care what anyone says, you cannot expect half a mountain of flour to be nicely held together by some butter. It.just.doesn't.happen.

 

In the end, I wanted to throw the 'dough' (trust me, it wasnt dough) into the bin... but my mum came to the rescue.. and these guys live to see a ... well... a day or two.. before they are eaten by my kids!

 

(yes, i ate one. i also ate a lot of the dough as i was standing there, pondering what to do with it.. i feel sick at the thought of gingerbread men.....these will definitely not be made again in a hurry!! )
