Gingerbread Reindeer

This is yet another recipe I found on Pintrest. Not so much a recipe and more of an idea that I found. Today I am making Monkey/Bubble Bread for Christmas breakfast and Rolls for Christmas dinner. While they are raising and baking, i figured i'd have time to post these.

I made these for my co-workers, I used the same gingerbread men recipe that i used last year, only this time I cut them smaller so i would not have to make three batches. Using leftover royal icing and some Christmas Smarties, I made these!

I was a bit afraid that the Smarties would be to big, but they turned out perfect. All you have to do to make these cuties is bake a batch of gingerbread men, like so:

And turn them upside down. It's nice to be able to get two uses out of one cutter. I think they turned out adorable, and so do the few co-workers that saw them last night. I won't know until later today when I go in if everyone agrees, I'm sure they will, though.

Now the Monkey bread is baking, and I have to go mop my floors. Then all I have to do is run to the City Market to get my veggies for Sunday, and Christmas is done! Just have to sit back and have fun.

We even got a special Christmas treat from Mother Nature today!We have had one storm, about a month ago, and the snow was gone a week later. The grass has been green and we thought we were in for a green Christmas, but when we woke up this morning there was about half an inch down, and they changed the rain forecast to about 3 inches of snow! We get a White Christmas!

Merry Christmas Everyone!!
