Gingerbread man

Every year before Christmas I seeking in my notes a gingerbread man cookie recipe for a long time. This year I thought up to make a nice picture of gingerbread man for my kitchen. With the recipe of course.

And I give this nice picture of gingerbread man to you! I've uploaded the picture in large format, so you can save this picture yourself  and do with it a note card, decor for the kitchen and just use it in your cookbook. Download image easily and for free!
Right-click on the image "open link in new tab". In the opened window save the image to your PC. Then you can use the picture of your choice. It is a gift from Marina Vita.
