    Talking inexpensive idea for company. UPDATED I HAVE THE RECIPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My mom is doing this again this year. she did it years ago and it was a huge hit. She make cookies though and i don't so it would never work for me. Here is what she does.
    she makes and decorates gingerbread men. *hers are the best btw.* any cookies would work though. then wraps them in pastic wrap, and ties in between each one with ribbon you have to tie two strings in between each one of the men. so at the bottom of each man you have two strings tied, about 1/2 inch apart. they are in one long line, *kinda like the lollipops in a string.* then she hangs them next to the front door and has a pair of sissors hanging next to them with a note take one with you. they clip off the bottom on for a treat on the way home. Does this make any sense?? sorry late and i am tired. i wish i had a photo to show what i mean. LOL>

    here it is>>>>>>>>
    1 C. Molasses 1 1/2 tsp. Cream of Tarter
    1/4 C. sugar. 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
    1 C veg.oil 1 1/2 tsp. Ginger
    4 tsp. Baking soda 1 1/2 tsp. Cloves
    2 3/4 C. HOT water 1 1 1 1/2 teaspoons of Pepper (
    2 tsp. vanilla.
    5 2/3 C flour

    this is optional, only if want a little extra bite to it, *try it though*

    Mix sugar and molasses together mix in veg oil, vanilla and beaten egg. disolve the baking soda in the hot water and add. mix all dry ingredents together and add to the wet ingredents.
    batter will be thin (this is normal) refrigerate 3 to 4 hours minimum up to over night. Roll out into 1/4 think, cut and cook 8-10 minutes at 400 degrees.
    *WARNING THESE ARE ADDICTIVE*
