    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    My co-worker Amy is talented in all things craftsy: basket-making, soaps (the real kind, with lye!) and this is her recipe for gingerbread craft dough for holiday ornaments, etc. You can protect them with clearcoat to save for future holidays, but this will mask the delicious spicy fragrance, so I'd just make more next year and enjoy the aroma this year. Prep time includes drying time and yield depends on the size of your cookie cutters. And please don't eat them!
