ISO gingerbread construction recipes

bite bite | Dec 3, 2008 09:58 AM

Marking a gingerbread house this year for the first time! Got a baking mold from Nordicware which includes a recipe -- would love to hear from successful gingerbread architects what your favorite recipes are. Ideally kid-friendly in taste for 6 and 3-year old -- and V important -- good for building.

ADDITIONAL QUESTION: Some recipes I notice call for butter, others for shortening. Would the shortening make a softer cookie? While possibly tastier -- wondering if that might cause construction problems. Or not? Anyone know?
