Did you ever fold up a piece of paper and cut out a row of paper dolls?

Christmas is traditionally over on January 6 or Twelfth Night. Well - that's come and gone weeks ago and I still have the remembrance of a wonderful Christmas spread out around the house. So hard to get it all picked up and put away! We have managed to eat up most of the Christmas cookies (and they were soooo good)

BUT - there were four gingerbread men left and when I opened the tupper where they were stored it reminded me of the paper dolls we used to cut out of a piece of folded paper when we were kids - my generation anyhow!

This is our original gingerbread man. Nina makes them for us every year - exactly the same. It's a tradition! But this year she rolled our gingerbread recipe a little thinner - 1/8 inch and they are very crisp compared to the ones we roll 1/4 inch to decorate. You wouldn't think it would make that much difference but it does. They are VERY good rolled thin - or "were" . . .

The cookie platter? Clockwise from the Gingerbread Men, Ginger Cookie snowflakes, Nina's Jam Buttons, Lebkuchen stars, Pecan Balls, Iced Ginger Cookies with Jill's Spritz in the middle. YUM!
