Gingerbread Twigs

Makes approx 30 twigs Prep Time 10 minutes   Cook Time 20 minutes   Rated:

What big kid doesn't like a little gingerbread on his cheeseboard at Christmas time? Delicate, but delicious little twigs of gluten-free gingerbread, as good for the grown ups as they are for the kiddywinks. And kind of cute for gifting as well I might add. For the nut free amongst us who tend to miss out a little at Christmas time, these are just the perfect crunchy solution...enjoy!
