On the Second Day of Christmas Recipes: Build a Gingerbread House

I’ve built a number of Gingerbread Houses in my day (and last year a train!). But usually these houses came in one of two forms. Either they came out of a cute little Gingerbread House Kit or build with graham crackers (Gram-bread house?) glued together with icing. Yeah, I know, it’s the lazy way out. And the worst part is, when you use the kits especially, the finished house isn’t exactly edible.  I’ve always wanted to make a gingerbread house from scratch, but the time commitment scares me away.

So this year…I’m still going to be lazy. But I spent a lot of time online looking for the most idiot proof easiest way to create a gingerbread house from scratch. I figure, if I plant the idea, then you go and make the house, it’s kind of like me doing it too. Right? Good.

The easiest, step by step instructions I found were for Ellen’s Edible Gingerbread House on Taste of Home. And for some design inspiration, check out these houses!
