Happy Gingerbread Men
Seems I get the urge to do baking and trying new things this time of year. Had the urge for something sweet and thought my family would like a healthy treat. Found this recipe for oatmeal gingerbread cookies. I am not a fan of oatmeal cookies or gingerbread but I thought it would be fun to decorate them.
You can see the oatmeal in the dough and it was a little dry. I was concerned about that but they seemed to cut well.
Into the oven they went. They looked naked to me. I added a raisin belly button.
Once I took them out of the oven they were happy. Not sure if I would say they were the best cookie I ever ate. Tasted like a little gingerbread and oatmeal mixed together. Guess that is because that is what it was. However, gingerbread and oatmeal do go together well kinda like peanut butter and chocoate. I love the little guy in the middle. Do you see the small one. There was not quite enough dough left over so I created him out of what was left.
