I just finished crocheting the Christmas tree decorations for my 40 surrogate children.....this year they are gingerbread men cookies. So as I was reading your recipe, I had the idea to soak my little guys in a cinnamon mixture or maybe drop cinnamon oil on them so they will smell nice too. Thanks for the idea............memawphd
