People are so weird.
I just watched a bunch of Youtube videos of people blowing up gingerbread houses. It is, I guess, a thing now.
And I’ll admit, these videos are oddly compelling. (below)
I only mention it because I am about to share a gingerbread recipe, and I don’t want anybody getting hurt. These low carb gingerbread cookies are soft and chewy and only have 3g net carbs each. They are easy to make and tasty to eat.
But please, I beg you, don’t blow these gingerbread cookies up.
