The Gingerbread Man Is a Pretty Good Cookie
October 29, 2020 10:50am CST
Gingerbread men, tasty little cookies shaped like tiny men, have been around since the 1400s. Elizabeth I of England was to entertain a lot of important men at a dinner during her reign. Well, clever Elizabeth I had figures of gingerbread men made to represent each of her very important male guests. How cute was that?? I was pleased to know that gingerbread men were also sold by magicians and witches to young ladies as a love potion. When a young lady ate her purchased gingerbread man, the man of her dreams would fall in love with her. Also, if the young lady could get the man of her dreams to eat the gingerbread man she purchased, well he was all hers. So romantic! https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/230238/gingerbread-men-cookies/

@CarolDM Oh, I remember doing that. When my brother was in kindergarten, he would place his mat for naps kindergarten kids took back in the day, right next the gingerbread house a parent made for the class. My brother ate parts of that gingerbread house each day during naptime, and the teacher called my mom about that. My dad taught at the same school, so what my brother did was a bit embarrassing for Dad.
