What you do after your college finals are over

If you are my daughter, after your last college final is done, you come home and bake! I had some "old school" gingerbread dough made. I'm talking 1 tablespoon of ginger and some blackstrap molasses. She figured out a pattern and made our first ever-from scratch-gingerbread house. We've made plenty of graham cracker ones but this one she actually built.

She used simple, pretty coconut and royal icing to decorate this. Look how dark this cookie is!
Then she used the leftover dough to make these little inhabitants, complete with a ginger Sheriff to look out for everyone else.

Your daughter returned home to bake! That is a blessing times 2 or 3 or... and yes, that is dark cookie dough. It will taste very good if you can bear to actually eat it!

Daughters are a real treasure and blessing aren't they?

We've been eating the small gingerbread cookies-very strong taste! I'm having my daughter tackle homemade candies next.
