You can make iTwixie’s Gingerbread and make a gift they’ll remember and love.
Thank you, CBS Pittsburgh, for this great picture of Gingerbread Houses from Light Up Night!
Now, grab a parent or an adult to help, and here is what you’ll do:
Heat in a sauce pan until well melted and blended:
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup syrup (molasses or pure maple)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup cream
- 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
Mix in gradually:
3 1/2 cups flour (make a thick dough, may not take all of the flour!)
