Admittedly, I did not roll out the cookies as thin as possible. This is one of my first batch of cookies where I felt comfortable rolling out dough and cutting out the cookies. Mine are more like Moravian gingerbread people (In the picture they're apparently trying to escape.). I decided to omit the icing since I'll be shipping these people around the country. But the cookies don't really need any sprucing up. They have a great holiday taste that replicates those found in Winston-Salem pretty darn well. I think they're a good alternative to the gingerbread cookie this time of year, so if you want a change of pace try making some Moravian people.
