The Gingerbread cookies I made this Christmastime were a little less than ideal. I used waaayyy too much molasses but at least they were fun to make.
The Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain in Arizona took their cookie making skills to the next level, creating an 18 foot tall Gingerbread house that people can actually dine in.
The delicious structure includes 400 lbs. of honey, 856 lbs. of sugar, 350 lbs. of flour, 100 lbs. of ginger powder, 50 lbs. of cinnamon, 250 eggs and 10 lbs. of nutmeg. Wow, that’s a lot of sugar.
For $150 each, six people can dine in the cozy Gingerbread house through the holidays. It includes a fireplace too, which thankfully isn’t made out of Gingerbread. The cost of the three or four course meal isn’t included, but how many times can you say you’ve dined inside a Gingerbread house? Pretty cool.
