    LuuvBunny's Note:

    This recipe came from a 1960's calendar my mom has. She would make these every Christmas for me. Now I make them every year. They melt in your mouth. Not sure on the exact yield, it depends on what size cookie cutters you use.

      Tried this recipe for some fun with my Grandson, since he was off school today sick. I had a really hard time rolling it out. It crumbled, I managed to make 2 gingerbread man, 1 moon, and 2 house's and trashed the rest. Sorry not sure what or why it didn't work.
