It's a Christmas Gingerbread Baking Miracle - in two parts!

I have been compulsively baking for almost a month now... well, baking, knitting and working.
I inherited my love for baking from my mom and because she would do so many recipes each year, it doesn't seem like Christmas if even one of those delicious, decadent delights are not in my gingerbread sleigh every year, it's a problem... I have also added quite a few of my own recipes I've developed over the years so I am a busy girl! I also do a gingerbread sleigh because when I was young I loved drawing horses so I made a gingerbread cookie horse and sleigh template when I was a teenager.

Now, honestly, doing all this baking to make my entire family and now John's family happy with Christmas treats requires some exceptional time management on my part... not to mention the patience of a saint on the part of those who must work around me as everything from eggs to flour to vanilla have taken up residency throughout our kitchen. It is not uncommon to have a bit of cookie dough stuck to your socks at this time of year... but only if the dogs don't get it first.

So I thought I'd share some pictures of the hectic gingerbread baking process with you to get your holiday tastebuds humming... Then I'll post a blog when we ice the gingerbread. That's the really messy but fun part!

This is Ginger Dee and Johnnie, pre-baking:

And we're cooling off:

Ginger Dee and Johnnie, true patriot love, maple leaf, moose... All that's missing is a hockey stick and a puck!

I'll blog about the icing process of these little darlings in the next couple of days. In the meantime:

Christmas is only six sleeps away!
