Mini Gingerbread Houses

Christopher Simpson for The New York Times. Food Stylist: Simon Andrews.

If you’re looking for the sturdiest of gingerbread houses, this recipe will get you there. (Here's a printable cut-out template.) A high quantity of shortening is the secret to a strong house that will last for weeks (or more). If you like to nibble on your gingerbread house, use unsalted butter in place of shortening for a tastier and more cookie-like flavor. Whichever you choose, be sure to bake the cookies until they’re very crisp doing so will reduce the moisture in the dough, which is important for the house’s stability. This recipe will produce more dough than you need for one large house or three small houses. Re-roll the scraps and make an extra small house, or create decorative elements like a door, window ledges, shutters, a chimney, or gingerbread people to snack on while you decorate.

Mini Gingerbread Houses

Gingerbread houses are as fun to make as they are to eat — but sometimes, assembling cookie castles is as difficult as building their brick-and-mortar counterparts. Assemble this village of houses for a quick-and-easy version of the classic. They are perfect for your holiday party or cookie swap.

Follow this step-by-step to create your own Mini Gingerbread Houses. For the ingredient list, go to the Mini Gingerbread Houses recipe.

Make a Template for Cutting the Houses

Make the Dough + Roll It Out

To make the gingerbread cookie dough:

In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, ginger, cinnamon and clove.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and brown sugar with the paddle attachment until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes on medium-high speed. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well between each and scraping the sides of the bowl. Mix in the molasses on low speed until well blended. Add the flour all at once and mix on low speed just until it all comes together. Scrape down the bowl and turn the speed to medium beat for 15 seconds.

Wrap the gingerbread dough in plastic and refrigerate until set up, at least an hour.

Prepare the dough to make the cookie house pieces:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment.

Roll out the chilled dough onto a well-floured surface to 1/8-inch thick.

Make the Cookie House Pieces

Using your templates, cut out two sides and two front-and-back pieces for each house. (You can freeze any remaining dough or use it to make stained-glass-window cookies.) [*Add link to blog post + stained glass cookies.]

You may find a pastry wheel and a brand-new X-acto knife are the best tools for getting a clean edge.

Prep for Baking

10 Minutes in the Oven

To Make the Ganache

Cool Down

Start Assembling the Houses

Once the ganache is set, fill a small parchment pastry bag with a small amount of ganache and cut a tiny hole on the tip.

Line a baking sheet with parchment and use the ganache as glue to hold the house in place as you build it. Start by putting four small dots of ganache 2 by 2 inches apart, which will become the corners of your house.

Make the White Decorating Icing

In a bowl mix together the confectioners' sugar, milk, corn syrup and almond extract until smooth. It should be thin enough to pipe from a parchment piping bag but not so thin that it spreads and doesn't hold its design. If it is too thick, add more milk. If it is too thin, add more confectioners' sugar.

Use the pastry bag to decorate your houses with a simple or ornate pattern. Let the icing set between each side by sticking them in the refrigerator for 10 to 15 minutes.
