Gingerbread House gift bag idea l cute little gingerbread houses made of paper bags. Using puffy paint, draw your desired design making it as simple or as complicated as you’d like. You can also have your kids draw on it with a white crayon or paint and decorate it with cute stickers. Once dried, fold opening of bag to form a triangle, punch two holes and tie with ribbon or twine. (Martha Stewart copy cat)
Giant Ginger Cookies (with ground black pepper) - I love this recipe and have made it a dozen times! Instead of 12 giant cookies I make 24 regular sized cookies and I replace the allspice with cinnamon and skip coating in sugar - still very, very good!
