Wintertime is here. Cookies need to be baked. Gingerbread houses need to be decorated. And gifts need to be wrapped.
What is your favorite part about wintertime?
While decorating gingerbread cookies and gingerbread houses can be tedious and time consuming, it can also be a great way to pass some time with friends and family during the holidays. I’ve attached three printouts you can use to make three different gingerbread houses: A-Frame, Modern and Sloped Roof. The printouts contain instructions plus cutouts you can use to cut the cookie dough.
Each of the three have slightly different difficulties. The modern house is easy as it’s easy to cut, bake and assemble. The A-Frame is labeled as intermediate as the large roof panels and their steep angle can be tricky to assemble. The sloped roof is labeled as difficult as it requires ingenuity during baking. You will need to bake the roof panels on the edge of a sloped pan or on a form to create the curves – be sure to make any adjustments to the sides to ensure the curves match. This can easily be done with a few chopsticks and a silicon baking mat though some certain baking pans or sheets will have an adequate curve.
