Gingerbread Tile CookiesMADE BY RUSTIC BAKERY IN LARKSPUR, CALIFORNIA
Once upon a time, there was a woman named Carol and a man named Josh, who owned a bakery near the Golden Gate. The husband and wife team were hungry, so Carol decided to bake a gingerbread man.
She made a big batch of dough, then rolled it flat and cut it in the shape of a gingerbread man. Then she made more, hand-rolled it with a flowering trellis design and cut out rectangular tile shapes to build the man’s house. Then she put it all in the oven to bake.
You know how the rest of this story goes. The Gingerbread Man has long since run away, but Rustic Bakery’s giant chewy cookies topped with a perfectly crisp vanilla glaze have found a cult indie following!
