In our family, we have a tradition of decorating gingerbread men for Christmas.  I loved this twist on an old favorite for a fun Halloween activity for kids and au pairs.

  1. To make a batch, punch out shapes from cookie dough using cat and gingerbread-man cookie cutters, then bake. When the cookies are cool, pipe on frosting bones.
