After reading Chris' page on making gingerbread houses at New Years I decided to do the same. I have made a house or two before from a mold that my mom had given me but this time I wanted to make something out of the book, Gingerbread For All Seasons by Teresa Layman. Sure enough there are gingerbread houses in this book for Christmas, spring, halloween etc. I chose a cute little cottage that husband said was looking like the Alamo when I first started. It turned out better than that though. At least all of the pieces fit together and the recipe for the dough and icing that Chris gave was fantastic and easy to make. They are harder to make than it looks like on television and I have a new respect for those cooks.
