It takes a village: Mini Gingerbread houses!

Nothing quite says “Holidays” like the smell of gingerbread cookies baking in the oven. When Sweettablescapes got a huge order for some gingerbread cookies (see here) to be given as favors at a holiday party, we figured it would be nice to also make some special cookies for an annual Cookie Swap!

So with the help of this very convenient cookie cutter, IMG_0001(bought a couple of years ago at a discount store) we cut multiple little shapes to create an adorable village of gingerbread houses. To the mini homes, we added giant ones made with these cutters IMG_0006from Fancy Flours. They come with stencils which allow you to make some very elegant facades…

We used a classic recipe we’ve relied on for years: find it here!

Once baked and decorated, our houses made the perfect centerpiece on our foyer chest of drawers:
