What advice would you give someone starting this project? This recipe makes a LOT of cookies. It can be used for very small houses that you plan to eat right away, but the cookies are too soft for larger structures. The dough can be refrigerated for several days or frozen for up to a month. In the past I have had good results when I cut the recipe in half even though I've used a whole egg rather than half an egg. I prefer lining the cookie sheets with with parchment paper to greasing them. The cookies seem to come out more evenly baked. I used a simple Royal Icing, M&Ms, & other small candies for decorating the cookies.

Oh, Tanya, this is the easiest decorating possible. Squeeze on some frosting and plop a candy in the middle. lol

thank you !! Your cookies are so pretty! You should receive a prize for that decorating job.

So glad you like them, but that decorating takes no skill. No effort at all to squeeze a dot of frosting onto a cookie and stick a candy in the middle. A few squiggles for arms and legs and done.

Oh, thank you! The decorating was really nothing, but the cookies are too tasty to avoid eating!
