You know it’s going to happen anyway. Before their little sugar-icing buttons have had time to set, at least one of those poor little gingerbread-man cookies is bound to lose his head. Or arm. Or leg.
If you don’t drop one on his head on his way from cookie sheet to cooling rack (my specialty), someone is going to sneak in and grab a quick bite. So go ahead, go with the flow — make those gingerbread men as nature intended to begin with.
Headless and/or partially dismembered.
Here are Fred’s ABC cookie cutters — where ABC stands for “Already Been Chewed.” I think you’ll know how best to use them.
No questions asked. Just, be sure to eat all the evidence.
