It’s a gingerbread house! It’s a snow globe! It’s a gingerbread house IN a snow globe!
And this beauty -- whipped up by Erica of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania -- couldn’t be easier to make.
Start with a large, clear glass cookie jar or vase (be sure it has a top).
Fill the bottom with about 2 inches of granulated sugar, to make a snowy base.
Take the panels of your gingerbread house, and sprinkle them with powdered sugar, for a winter wonderland affect. Gently tap off the extra.
Stand the panels up inside the cookie jar, pressing them down into the sugar so they hold steady.
Pop on the top, and you have the ultimate holiday centerpiece.
