Everyone knows, Christmas is a time for cookie making. I understand this, but, I am a realist, and I know that making cookies should be a spectator sport for me, not a hands on activity. But, when you have a 7 year old who wants to play with his food, supervision is in order.

Since I do not come from a family of bakers, I don't have any 'handed down' cookie recipes to pull out of my Santa's hat of baking tricks. I needed inspiration & I needed it fast.
|Wait for it...|
I saw a promising post from Fat Free Vegan on Facebook & thought I'd give it a try. Check it out here ~ Low Fat Gingerbread Cookie recipe.
|It's show time!|
It couldn't have been easier. The recipe makes A LOT of dough, so you can split it up & bake it over a few days of merry baking. We liked them best with a full coating of icing, but I think they look cooler when you pipe the design on.
J had a good time making them & ate them up as fast as I would let him. He really wanted to get out his Play Doh equipment to help with rolling, cutting out the shapes & decorating them...see, I said supervision was in order. :)
