Approximate Time: 24 hours (including drying time)
Assemble 2 sections for the roof and join them with icing. Spread icing on the top section of the house where the roof will set and then set the roof on top.
Cut corners off of some of the cookies and fill in under the roof with icing. I found the easiest way to do this is using a toothpick to hold them. Again let dry for approximately 2 hours for the icing to set.
Once dry, ice the roof and apply candy decorations. Let dry overnight and then remove the toothpicks.
Hint: To speed up drying time, you can preheat your oven and then turn it off and place the house on a cookie sheet and put in oven while warm. Do NOT leave oven on or it will burn.

I think it is a very cute idea to do with your child, grandchild or preschool class. It is simple enough to do with a child & looks very quaint and cute. The child would be so proud of it & it is a great idea!
