Fun with the grandsons.

All the kids are here for the weekend.
What fun we are having.
We made gingerbread ornaments.

This is what they look like unbaked.
All you need is
2 cups flower 1 cup salt 1 cup coffee for brown color bake 1 hr at 300
You can add cinnamon or ginger for aroma.
These are not edible.
I was asked several times if they could eat them. I started out telling them this was like play dough.
Or clay. Plus it helped to have a cake already made or do this on a full belly. LOL
I am so thankful for this visit. And look forward to next Saturday. They will all be here again for a thanksgiving dinner.

Looks like good times!! I see the one boy has red eyes the entire time...I can relate!! :) How on earth did you get away with making inedible cookies?!? You're one sneaky grandma!! :)

Carla said...

What darling monkeys you have! I've made these with cinnamon for the brown, (just cinnamon and applesauce), I bet the coffee makes it smell like coffee, can you use old coffee grounds? That would be really cheap. (mine would have HAD to taste test! :)

That sounds like so much fun! It also sounds easy to do. I might have to try it. Thanks for sharing!

What fun...we do cinnamom applesauce ornaments every year. I've always wanted to do gingerbread boys, but never could find a good recipe...until now!

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you'll be back.

Looks like they had a blast with that! It's always hard convincing kids that even though it smells good, it isn't edible. I'm always amazed what my 2 year old will pick up and start eating... ICK
