Chocolate man cookies !! Merry Christmas !!

After celebrated the "Winter Solstice", now is time for Christmas celebration.
My kids requested me to bake Gingerbread man cookie but without ginger taste as they dislike the ginger flavour. So what I did ? I changed ginger powder to cocoa powder, thus I can not called this as gingerbread man cookie, it has changed name to "Chocolate man cookie" , Ho Ho Ho!!!

Gingerbread man ---> Choco man cookies ... =_=""

Hahaha ... But, I've got to admit that the pungent tastes lent by those spices are not Asians' fave ... I like them though! I like spiced pumpkin pie!

Yours look so festive & yummy! Merry X'mas & Happy 2010!!
