Even though gingerbread is a traditional treat this time of year, you might be looking for new ways to change up your existing gingerbread recipe. If facial hair is your thing, you will love this beard-based challenge from Jennifer Imhoff-Dousharm of the Kitchen Overlord blog.

Inspired by the 'stunning' Commander William Riker on Star Trek, the cookie shape works for a number of occasions (like Movember, the yet to be established Hipster Appreciation Day and so forth). If Riker is not to your taste, you can create your own beard template to use with this standard gingerbread recipe. For example, Santa Claus and Albus Dumbledore are both great choices. Or if you are more of a mustache person, that is a great option too.
