Different Cookies for "Gingerbread" Houses

cndbaker | Sep 26, 2011 03:43 PM

Hello everyone,

I need some help with baking. I normally make gingerbread houses, but I have a friend and her two girls who don't like gingerbread (blasphemy I know!). I tried to make them last year with a thicker short bread, but the royal icing was not strong enough to hold the pieces together.

Can anyone suggest some other cookies that would taste as good and be strong enough to decorate like gingerbread?

Thank you for any help! =]
