As we’re ringing in the new year, baking gingerbread men is a tradition our family has endured since I can remember. True to form, my mom, “Grandma,” has come up with yet another innovative reuse for an everyday kitchen tool: Use a garlic press to make gingerbread people hair!
Use a knife to cut the hair off at the length you’d like and then press the hair into the top of your gingerbread person’s head.
Bake your cookies and you have a more 3D cookie for your family to enjoy!
