Love me some Gingerbread Men

Hello Gorgeous People!

Hope this week treated you well. I am SO excited to share this recipe with you, it’s one of my all time favourites, let your creativity run wild with this one!

I was curled up on the sofa a few weeks back watching one of my all time favourite movies ‘Love Actually’. Don’t you just love that movie? Especially around christmas time.. Lovely cast, heart warming story (get a box of tissues if you’re a hopeless romantic like I am). The movie put me right into Christmas mode which is why I decided to bake a batch of gingerbread men.. at 12 AM! (guilty once again).

Let me just say that the house smelled like a giant gingerbread cookie.. who needs scented candles?!

You can find the recipe for these tasty morsels Here.

Baker’s Tips: For a chewy cookie (my fav!) bake for 6 mins only. Use mini Smarties or M&M’s for the buttons. I omitted the Allspice only because I couldn’t find any, they still turned out delicious!

Enjoy the pics xx
