Gingerbread Mad Men: A Recipe for Serious Eats

Gingerbread Mad Men - Don Draper
They say you have to learn the rules before you break them. But is it ever possible to break them just a little bit while you learn them? Case in point: gingerbread men.
Gingerbread Mad Men - Joan
I haven't made enough of them to feel comfortable messing with the classic recipe but wanted to have a little fun with this batch nonetheless. The solution? Using a classic recipe—in this case, from Betty Crocker's Cooky Book—but decorating them as Gingerbread Mad Men, inspired by the characters in the AMC series.

Note: I am pretty much obsessed with Mad Men (I blame my friend Julie). I only discovered it about a month ago and actually am not caught up to the end of Season 3 yet, so please, no spoilers!

LOVE THESE! And I LOVE Mad Men! You have inspired me! I want to make MM cookies for Christmas too! I don't know how many of the 3 seasons you've seen so far, but I guarantee that all three finales so far will Blow. You. Away. Enjoy! Thanks for this great post, I found you through "Basket Of Kisses", a the ultimate MM site, but you better watch all three seasons before you go there.-Therese
