Christmas Cookies

One of my fondest memories as a child was going to the Gingerbread House at the Central City Mall in San Bernardino for Gingerbread cookies and Hot Gingerbread. The store and the mall are long gone, but the memories will remain a lifetime. Thus, such a perfect greeting!

This sweet little girl is baking up some gingerbread men. I absolutely love her. Did you know that a gingerbread is the only man you can chew on his butt, bite off his head or poke him in the belly and he won't be offended! In fact, he loves being chewed on (a lonely cookie never gets chewed on). Check out the little embellishment string of gingerbread men... I stamped up extra images and cut out the cookies then strung them across on tiny twine.

  1. My mom and I were just remembering The Gingerbread House at the mall too. It was incredible. I still dream of that hot gingerbread square. Nothing rates close to it that I have found today.

  2. I use to work at the Gingerbread House during the early 80's. I loved that hot square of gingerbread.
