Gingerbread Cookies for Roya

Photobucket

Gather around children, let me tell you a story. Last year in Community Leadership when we had a Christmas party I decided to make Gingerbread cookies. My friend Roya and I decided to go and study afterwards and since I had some cookies left over from the party, she I let her have some. Her reaction went like this, she eat one, and another, and another. And one even fell on the ground but she picked it up and ate it! In the process she almost fell backwards because her backpack was too heavy. Hahahahha. At first I wasn’t going to make these for our party but I decided since it is Christmas and Roya is one of my dearest friends (friends since kindergarten!!!) I decided to make these. I decorated them using Royal icing.
