Baking Challenge

3-D Gingerbread Story

Give your cookies or gingerbread creation a name based on the flavors and decoration – and tell us about your recipe.

"America’s Dairyland"

Now that you survived this challenge, what words of wisdom do you have to share?

The top of the silo was my biggest challenge. The recipe that I used is a favorite of my family’s: a delicate, orange-flavored cookie with a significant butter base. The dough melted off of the forms that I used for my first three attempts. Finally, working in quite a bit more flour resulted in a successful, dome-shaped piece to set atop the silo. The bottom line … don’t give up. Just keep making edits until you achieve success!

Tell us about how you added a Wisconsin twist.

As June is dairy month in our great state, it seemed fitting to salute Wisconsin’s dairy farms by creating a gingerbread scene. Hats off to all of the dairy farmers out there!

How did you do?

Rocked it.
