I always used to wonder how people would get glass windows in their gingerbread houses; then I came across this technique a few years back. I love how easy it is and I love the realistic effect you get, especially when you have a light inside your gingerbread house. 

Please note you will do these steps before you assemble your gingerbread house. 
First, start with some butterscotch candy discs. You can find them at most stores or even gas stations. 
Unwrap the candies and place them in a ziploc bag and close the bag :) I use a hard wooden spoon to crush the candies up into small pieces.
Put your already Baked gingerbread house pieces on a cookie sheet lined with foil or parchment paper. Place the crushed pieces of candy in your widow cut-outs of your gingerbread.
Put pieces in the oven at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes, or until the candy has melted. Remove from oven and let cool completely before taking the pieces off the cookie sheet. Once they are cooled you are able to assemble your gingerbread house as you normally would.
