Gluten Free Gingerbread House

Happy Holidays from all of us at Columbia Gorge Gluten Free! It’s that time of year again. Time for wreaths, Christmas trees and gingerbread houses. This year, because – let’s face it – it’s hard to find a gluten free gingerbread house kit, I decided to get creative and make my own! With some geometry and a little…bordering on a lot of “gingerbread house glue” it was a success!

Gluten Free Gingerbread House

I made my own gingerbread house pattern and used skittles and spice drops for decoration, but here are a couple of websites with great ideas and free house patterns if you just want to print one out and get started:  www.remodelaholic.comwww.recipelink.com & meinlilapark.blogspot.ch.
