Instructables
I had so much fun making this cute little house. Absolutely everything is edible.  I added a little cinnamon to this sugar cookie dough so that it would smell good too. My favorite part  is the chocolate covered sunflower seeds (Christmas lights), the wreath, and the crumbled cookie pathway. Also look closely to see the brick imprint on the side of the house. Oh and don't forget the cute little bird that just landed on the bird bath.This delicious project we be great to do as a family. You could keep it as a center piece for your holiday parties, and /or make one or more as gifts.

Start off by making your favorite sugar cookie recipe. The recipe I used is here. You can either draw or download your own "gingerbread house" template. I just used a mold that is meant to make chocolate houses. Here is a site that has a template and a  recipe for gingerbread. I also used a brick imprint mat to make my house look more realistic.

First I rolled out the cookie dough then I pressed the brick mat into it real good. Then I pressed the house mold into the dough and used a pizza cutter to cut around the dent that i made. Baked the pieces of house for about 15-20 min.

Step 3: Assemble the cookie house

Pipe a line of royal icing on all the sides of the pieces (except the roof) Position it the way you want and you can use can to hold them up .Let dry well. I Suggest overnight. 

The next day you can pipe some royal icing and attach the roof. Again I suggest letting it dry overnight.
