Gingerbread Men Cookie Sticks
Roll the cookie dough out 3/8-inch thick, and into a rectangle. Using a bench scraper (or ruler), make a small notch at each 3/4-inch measurement across the top, then measure 4 1/2-inches from top to bottom, and mark that with a notch. Cut out the strips with the bench scraper and place them on the baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in the freezer for 10-15 minutes to help them keep their "stick" appearance. Let cookies cool completely. Using a number 2 tip, outline the cookies with brown royal icing (I used a mix of AmeriColor chocolate brown and warm brown). Let dry. Using black, red and untinted royal icing, decorate the cookies as pictured. Let dry.
These fun cookie sticks would be great to stir in hot chocolate or as stocking stuffers!
