3D Gingerbread Cookies

Have you ever felt like you wanted to give up?  Unfortunately, I’ve had those moments more than three times this week and it was all because of  this recipe 3D gingerbread cookies.  It took me at least three tries to get it to look this decent.

Have you watched the tutorial?

On my first attempt, I cut out the cookies before I baked it and I wasn’t able to get the cookies to stand because the pieces ended up combining.  My second attempt, I spread out the pieces which would allows the cookies to stand and I spread it out more after I baked it, and it still fell.  My third attempt, I underbaked it and the pieces fell apart and finally my last attempt I was able to get it stand and look somewhat nice.

Take a look at my pictures!
