    Perfect Pixie's Note:

    My friend is a ginger and loves the attention from it. For her birthday, I made her a gingerbread house with gingerbread men and horses (she loves horses also). The only problem I had was I over-decorated the roof so the house collapsed!!! lol But this is a great recipe for gingerbread men.

      This was the gingerbread recipe I was looking for. I put some cinnamon and allspice in it, cos I like them, but the texture was exactly right - roll it thin and it's crispy, roll it thick and it's fudgy. Perfect.

      This was so easy and so yummy! I can't wait to make it again. The kids loved it, and even the hubby (who's not a big ginger fan) loved it. Yum Yum!!
