Light up your holiday table with a gingerbread house. Fun craft for kids, made easier with squeeze bottles and microwave bark coating!
Tips for success: forget everything you know about cookies when baking a gingerbread house. This recipe creates a tough dough that bakes into firm building pieces. No leavening agent is added, so that pieces will not rise or deform while baking. Yes, it's edible--but it won't taste like a good cookie!
Bake gingerbread house pieces the day before assembly, to allow them to cool and stiffen overnight.
