Gingerbread Men & Sugar Cookies

     Hey guys! Christmas is almost here! Three days to be exact and my sister and i decided to make gingerbread men and sugar cookies! This is my first time making gingerbread men and so far i don't think they'll turn out that bad (fingers crossed) but this is my second time making sugar cookies and i decided to throw some food coloring in to give them more of a festive look. Both of the recipes i used were found from Pinterest. You can find the gingerbread recipe here and the cut out sugar cookies one here.  I think both recipes are fairly easy for new time bakers like myself. Take a look!
