Gumdrops, lollipops, chocolate squares, jelly bears, and peppermint candies. The sky is the limit as far as decorating your own gingerbread house. They are a ton of fun to decorate, but first, you need to make the house itself.
This year, the celebration and cheer begin with Southern Living's Christmas 2017 guide. With page after page of decorating ideas, 100 all-new, kitchen-tested recipes for family feasts and utilizing leftovers (or, "Bestovers," as they prefer to call them), Southern Living has made its mark once again within the holiday season.
There are two types of holiday cookie bakers. First, there are those who faithfully recreate their favorite recipes year after year to the acclaim of gift recipients. Yes, tried and true recipes are successful…but they can get a bit boring! Do their friends really wait each year with gleeful anticipation for the same old pecan sandies and rum balls, or do they secretly yearn for coconut lemon macaroons and double fudge bar cookies? If you are one of these bakers, take a breather from your holiday traditions, and try a fabulous new recipe!
