The perennial Christmas favorite is an opportunity for creativity, with a little planning ahead!
*A mold helps immensely. If you have no mold, get a pattern online from http://www.fashion-era.com/Christmas/christmas_food_gingerbread_house_recipe.htm or invent your own. This recipe makes about 180 square inches of construction-grade gingerbread. Thin parts glue better than thick ones.
