(NB: these are biscuits that look like reindeer – not for reindeer to eat!)
These are really simple but great fun and enjoyed by kids and adults alike.
You will need:
-Basic gingerbread recipe (or any biscuit recipe, where you roll out the dough and cut out shapes)
-Gingerbread man cutter(s)
-Red food colouring
-Green food colouring
-Any other biscuit decorating things you desire!
Cook your biscuits as usual and then let them cool. Make up green, red and white icing. Turn the gingerbread men upside down so that their legs are in the air and – look! It’s a reindeer (the legs become the antlers, the arms the ears and the head the face). Decorate accordingly.
You could also keep some the ‘normal’ way up and make them snowmen, for a variety. 🙂
