I'm a big fan of gingerbread so I decided to give this one a go, since the only ingredients you need to add are egg yolk, butter and honey. Why not? Sometimes I feel lazy! Okay, more than sometimes.
I set up my Christmas music on the iPad and began mixing.

Betty said to roll the gingerbread dough between 2 pieces of baking paper until it was about 5mm thick, and then refrigerate for 15 minutes. It makes it easier to use cookie cutters on later.
I chose the shapes of Gingy Men (not my gumdrop buttons!) and Christmas trees, they seemed the obvious choices. After filling up two baking trays with trees and little guys I put them in the oven for about 8 minutes.
Well even though I thought I rolled them flat enough, the gingerbread men are a little bit chubby now and my trees are more resemblant of arrow heads. Betty failed me, Bublé didn't fail me though, he never fails me. Now you allow them to cool before starting the decorating process!
ICING IS REALLY TOUGH GUYS. You don't get a picture of all of them iced because it was a mess.
Overall if you're looking for a traditional homemade gingerbread thats a bit crunchy and peppery (and yum!) I would go for the Traditional Pepparkakor recipe. But if you're looking for a quick gingerbread in a box mix, (that doesn't suck) totally go for this! And it was only $5! Bargain.
