This is the gingerbread house we decorated!
(I can't take credit for the gingerbread, a friend of mine baked it and brought it over for us.
I think it's fairly obvious from the falling chocolate candies - this was definitely a house decorated by two year olds!
As you might imagine, most of the candy ended up being eaten before being put on the house. But it was still fun!
Here are my version of kolaches.
I don't remember my grandmother making these - but they are very good! Here is the recipe.
They take a long time - especially to chill the dough and filling! I added some dried cranberries to the filling instead of golden grapes. Also note: they have no refined sugar in them at all! Yet I would definitely not consider them low fat.
