Leave it to doyenne of domesticity/Gwyneth Paltrow's nemesis Martha Stewart to go above and beyond in the gingerbread department. This Christmas, she's building Downton Abbey out of gingerbread. Good news! You can too:
Step 1: Roll out the dough, cut, and bake!
Step 2: Pipe that decorative Trim!
Step 3: Make the caramel sugar windows!
Step 4: Assemble the Abbey!
Step 5: Die, knowing you have built an abbey out of cookie dough!
