I don't know who Eileen is, but I trusted her for my gingerbread men making needs. She failed me the first time. Well... I should say I failed myself the first time by not following directions. Foot note: when doubling recipes, it's most helpful to double ALL ingredients, especially the flour. :) Anyway. The second attempt was much more successful. Just make sure the dough is very cold when you roll it out. I just used a plain royal icing for the border, keeping it simple! I need to brush up on my frosting skills most definitely.
