Gingerbread House Help please

Every year I want to make a gingerbread house with the kids. Every year I don't because the kits are all contaminated for our allergies, (peanuts, walnuts and pecans) and I can't find an easy to understand recipe to make the walls myself.

Can you help me with information?


  1. I was thinking about doing this over the weekend and bought some dark molasses...

    waiting to see if any recipes turn up here.

  2. I wish I could help. This was the first one we've ever done, and it was a kit I bought at Costco. I know lots of other folks use graham crackers. Would those work for you?

  3. Will this work?

    I forget what your food issues are :)

  4. You can totally do this-there are a ton of recipes-there is even a set of cookie cutters to make the shape. I like to do big rectangles and then just make an A frame shaped house-super cute. Want to get together and do it with the kids?

  5. I used a basic recipe from Betty Crocker.......and I found a template online. I can scan the template and email it to you if you like!!
