Cutest little Thanksgiving gingerbread people!

I was busy all afternoon making these little cuties for our church Thanksgiving dinner.  I had a blast!

I used this recipe for the royal icing.  It worked super.  I used a Ziploc bag with a tiny piece cut from the corner for my icing bag.   It was very convenient, and for the most part, easy to clean up.  I am so excited how well they turned out!  I never have had much success decorating cookies; not that these are gourmet, by any means, but I thought they were cute!

How adorable! I recently made some gingerbread creations of my own due to a low-priced gingerbread cookie dry mix I found. I also frosted them, and they made great gifts. I think they mean more since it takes so much time to make and frost them.
Actually Lindsey helped me make them, and she loved it! I will say, though, she had enough flour out and around, and everywhere for many more cookies than we were making!
And, I discovered my husband really likes Gingerbread cookies! I always thought they were kind of old-fashioned, and everyone likes chocolate chip cookies better now! So many things to learn as a newlywed!
I never thought of frosting them to look like pilgrims,indians, and other Thanksgiving things! What a great idea!

Those are so cute!!! It's been so long since I've had cookie cutters. They got lost in one of our moves. I need to get some more and keep them in a tin in the kitchen. The shape and icing add so much!
