The gingerbread men cookies were made with ingredients that were different from the ones that are usually used for baking cookies (such as mustard powder, salt and hot sauce, which were added to the dough). When they were done, they were left undecorated, and a piece of mistletoe was placed in the center of the plate.
Home Alone 5
While Hughes and Jessica were in the kitchen, Hughes takes a gingerbread man and decides to eat it. Even though Jessica tells him not to do it, since Sinclair says so, Hughes eats it and is disgusted by the taste. Hughes grabs a nearby glass of milk which actually turned out to be glue and spits the gingerbread man and glue into the sink. The garbage disposal then shoots out cotton balls which sticks to the remaining glue on Hughes' lips, giving him a "Santa Claus" beard.
