The gingerbread house is a relatively new introduction into our family Christmas tradition. The kids love to decorate and eat it, so I’m happy for it to stay! The first year we made one was about 3 years ago and was one of the ready made kits – it ‘worked’ but tasted awful so the next year I came across the box of cutters and as I already had a fantastic gingerbread recipe from my friend Juliet I have just done this one the last few years. This year’s one is made from spelt flour as one of my kids is better with that than wheat flour. This recipe is certainly not GF, but it’s a spectacular Christmas treat and makes a sensational centrepiece for any Christmas meal or party.
