Ginger Blobs

Cookie baking kind of turned into a flour fight.
This was supposed to be Santa. I'm an excellent cookie decorator. 
A few days before Christmas, two of my best friends came over to make gingerbread men. I bought all of the supplies, bought decorating icing and sprinkles and even got out the cut outs that were in our pantry. Then...I realized that I forgot to buy butter. Our foolish selves thought we could replace the butter with the "I can't believe It's Not Butter" we found in my fridge. It was the soft, spreadable kind and the recipe called for "16 tbsp.", the container read "about 30 tbsp" so we merely cut out half the butter and added it to our dough. Well, it turns out the dough never stiffened like it was supposed to. Ha, so we ended up with ginger blobs instead of gingerbread men. It  turned out to be just as fun decorating our blobs!

  10. Haha. I wanted to make gingerbread men and never found the gingerbread supplies until I got them as a present on the mail. Instead I made sugar cookies that were supposed to be shaped as Christmas-y stuff with my new cutters, but... they mutated themselves in the oven. Haha. Thanks for sharing. - Carla
