Gingerbread houses are a tradition at our house. There is a wonderful aroma that fills the room as the gingerbread is baking.
My kids used to love making these gingerbread houses. This year I made them each a house and my three teenage boys half-heartedly threw some candy on to make me happy. I am thinking they have outgrown this tradition. My daughter still had fun with it so maybe we will have to turn it into a mother/daughter activity.
The recipe is simple but I got it from a friend and I am not sure she would like me to post it.
One thing I will tell you is that I love using meringue powder rather than egg whites in my royal icing.
