Below, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has shared this delicious gingerbread recipe that he likes to make with his daughter. He says, "When I make gingerbread men with my daughter, we like to pour all the decorations into separate bowls and spread them out on the kitchen table. The frosting is our “glue” to affix all decorations. You can get creative when you make them and play holiday music and invite friends and family to participate."
And, while cookies are a "sometimes" treat, gingerbread is surprisingly low in fat. Plus, the cookies are filling, so just one with a glass of milk will do!
Tips: You will need an electric mixer for this recipe since the dough is quite thick. A hand held beater is not equipped to do the job. Ask a grown-up helper (GH) for help making the dough the night before so it can refrigerate all night and during the day. When you return from school, it will be ready for baking and decorating.
