Gingerbread Ninjas!

(black-belt worthy fighters)

Last week we celebrated a good friend’s birthday. While I didn’t want to post these pictures until after the day, I found these cookie cutters on Amazon, and I couldn’t resist. Not only does this friend have a double black-belt in karate, but she also deserved to greet her new year with a kick-butt attitude.

I followed a basic gingerbread recipe like this one and then wrapped them in a gift bag with the ninja cookie cutters attached with string.

(for best results with the dough, i recommend making it ahead of time and then chilling overnight)

(you'll want to keep an eye on these...take them out before their edges burn.)
