Although the holidays and all those yummy baked goods are just fond memories, there is still a leftover cookie question that Trusty Sidekick and I are looking for an answer to. If you are the lucky recipient of a freshly baked gingerbread man, is there a proper way to eat the cookie? Do you bite an arm, leg, or head off first? My son apparently thinks it is kinder to bite off the gingerbread man’s head so that he isn’t aware that he has reached his demise. My traditional method is to bite in this order: arms, legs and then, his head. I hadn’t thought this was cruel before my son’s theory. Perhaps next year I won’t bake gingerbread men.
Unfortunately, several gingerbread men were harmed in the making of this post.
