Good Morning America!

If you're tuning in from 
Good Morning America, 
So glad you are here, 
and thanks for stopping by!
Grandma Max’s 
Gingerbread Men
1 egg
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 c butter, melted
1/2 c molasses
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c milk
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/8tps ginger

Preheat oven to 400*. 
Mix egg, sugar, molasses, butter, and milk. 
Sift together dry ingredients and add to sugar mixture while mixing. 
Sometimes I have to add more or less flour, depending on the weather.
You want it to be like Play-doh.
Roll out dough and cut into desired shapes. 
Put cut out Gingerbread Men into your FREEZER for 5 min
{so they hold their cute little shape when they cook},
and then...
Bake for 8 min., cool, and decorate!
I like to buy the tubes of frosting
from the grocery store to make things simple,
and I LOOOOVE to just let my kids at it 
all by themselves.
These little cutie pies were the perfect afternoon snack,
and my Gibbies gobbled them up the minute they walked through the door.
Got milk?
There is an adorable 
children's book called 
"The Gingerbread Pirates" 
by Kristin Kladstrup that we read all Christmas season long. It's especially fun to whip out the night we've made 
Grandma Max's Gingerbread Men.
