Runaway Gingerbread Man!

This little guy is a red plastic cookie cutter - probably from the early 60's . We had one just like it when I was growing up, and we used it all the time to make soft gingerbread cookies (sort of like these ones). A few years ago, I found out Mom had lost her gingerbread man cookie cutter, so I went on an Ebay search to find a replacement. After several months of searching - bingo! There he was (along with several other ones of the same vintage). Mom told me I could keep them, though - they're actually really hard to use, because the dough gets stuck in all the little corners.

I still think it's the best-looking gingerbread man cookie cutter - even if it's not the best designed.
