Gingerbread cookies are the ultimate comfort food, and they’re not half-bad for you. However, after eating a few dozen gingerbread spookies made with the Fred and Friends Gingerdead Man Cookie Cutter, you won’t exactly be all skin and bones….and we speak from experience. BaronBob.com sent the GeekAlerts Test Kitchen a sample so we could put the Gingerdead Man Cookie Cutter to the ultimate test.
With the Gingerdead Men Cookie Cutter scaring up some laughs has never been so fun and tasty too. Make no bones about it this unusual cookie cutter and its results will be the unexpected hit of the holidays. Just be warned make sure you eat them before they eat you! This fun cookie cutter cuts and stamps jumbo five inch cookies and is made of heavy durable food-safe plastic. Package contains one cookie cutter ad is the perfect gift for the Nightmare Before Christmas Movie Fan.
Made from tough ABS plastic that’s food-safe, dishwasher-safe and ergonomic, this 5″-long cookie cutter gives you no reason to scratch your skull. There were no deadly smells in the room; only tantalizing aromas of butter, cinnamon, brown sugar and ginger. And this is just how easy the gizmo is to use:
After following your best gingerbread recipe, roll out the dough to 1/4″ thickness. Press the sharp side of the cutter into the dough to make skelly-clones, and then turn the cutter over to stamp a bony impression into each figure. For best results, press the skeleton stamp deep into the dough so that the head, ribs, hands and feet are well defined. After making a few, you’ll find that each cookie man has his own unique personality. This ‘before’ photo shows you how two made from the same cutter are not exactly alike.
When the cadavers cool, it’s time to ice them and send them to the morgue. The powdered sugar icing will effortlessly ooze and creep into the grooves, yielding the perfect shape of skeleton dudes. Get creative and add candy accessories to personalize each one. Check out the ‘after’ photo to see what we came up with.
The gingerbread cookie man tends to be confined to Christmas time only, but making Gingerdead Men cookies gives you a license to bust out gingerbread for lots of other events, including pirate parties, Halloween, El Dia de los Muertos, Grateful Dead reunion tour after-parties, “Six Feet Under” parties, “Nightmare Before Christmas” bashes, or for gatherings associated with Radiology, Mortuary Science, or Chiropractors.
Be the undertaker of the holidays and serve up these nontraditional skeleton cookies. Be sure to let the kids get in on the fun, too. Everyone is going to want to make one. The cookie cutter/stamper combo lets even the most novice baker produce results like a talented pastry chef. None of us at GeekAlerts are professional bakers, but we easily managed to snap up cookies that struck an uncanny resemblance to those on the package. And you just can’t beat Gingerdead’s reasonable price of $6.95. The Gingerdead Men Cookie Cutter is part of the “Holiday Hilarity” section at BaronBob.com.
