One of our favorite family Christmas traditions is to bake Gingerbread Men for family and friends, and deliver them at Christmastime.

Whether you want to make them for friends, or just as a fun baking activity to do with the kids I thought I would share my trusted recipe and how I make my Gingerbread Men.
