Ginger bread man chocolate cookies

Ginger bread lady chocolate cookies

Assorted colors ornamental icing (clockwise): strawberry, cocoa, plain, and green tea

The cookies were very crunchy after baking (even after a day), kids kept asking for more, in fact, I was addicted too ;p However, after decorated them and kept for another day, they turned soft, were rather disappointing during the X'mas day party, lesson learned, do not keep them for long.
