Let’s Review the December Baking Challenge

December 2018 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: Gingerbread House

I’m so excited about the participation in December because homemade gingerbread houses are no easy project. I love your creativity!

One of my favorite recipe reviews came from reader Manou:

“I made this with my 5 year old grandson, and he loved it! Thanks so much for the template. It is a good size, not too big. I’m delighted with the crusting buttercream recipe. I will use it for other desserts also.”

We gathered as many gingerbread house photo entries as we could and included them below.

Reader Questions and Reviews

  1. Yes! I love your homemade bagel recipe already, I’ve made your everything bagel recipe a couple times and the cinnamon raisin… sans raisins! Lol I haven’t made them since I had my baby but I will definitely be participating in this months challenge 🙂
    Also.. how cool is that grinch gingerbread house!? Wow.

  2. One of my resolutions this year is to do all 12 Baking Challenges!

    And this one is very exciting because I can almost never find garlic bagels. If this goes well, I can just make them myself!

  3. Yay! love bagels and can’t wait to try them again. Last time (one and only time) they were hard as rocks! Pray I do better this time.

  4. So excited…My son and I were just talking about making bagels. We are DEFINITELY going to try this one, and we’ll tag you in all the places provided as this is our first challenge EVER!!!! Eeeek , so excited… Happy New Year!

  5. I don’t like bagels-maybe your recipe will change me. I love all the recipes you create.

  6. I just finished making these bagels. They turned out perfect! So delicious- we are eating them for dinner right now. I made half everything bagels and half cheese. ( I’m going to enter your contest too. I’m so excited and proud of how they turned out!) Thanks for the recipe – I’m looking forward to next months challenge.

  7. Made cinnamon sugar bagels (just omitted raisins) , and the hubby loved them!! And our two year old.
    Looking forward to doing more baking challenges this year!! This was my first.

  8. I made these earlier this month. I let the dough rise overnight. I don’t think I cut the dough evenly so some bagels were too thick and some were too thin but they tasted pretty good and will definitely try again and do some different flavors!
