Cookies! Cookies! Cookies!
This is my favorite time of year. I love the lights, the sounds, the music and most of all, I love the baking.
I love having Christmas music playing, my tree all lit up and the warmth of my kitchen, as I bake and my house fills with the wonderous scents of the season.
These Frosted Ginger Spice Cookies fill my house with the aroma of Christmas everytime we bake them.
I am blessed to be part of such a great group of die-hard foodies, and this year, today we are hosting a very special Cookielicious Exchange Party.
Our party is overflowing with the BEST cookie recipes out there.
We have a huge variety of cookies that we bake up at Christmastime, but I love the crispness of these cookies.
There’s the sweet, spicy aroma and flavor – a graham/gingerbread treat that literally melts filling your mouth with spicy goodness.
While we typically use a chocolate frosting, this year we opted for a simple white frosting that lends an extra sweetness to the cookies and allows all of the flavor to shine through.
This #Cookielicious party kicks off a month long look into our holiday baking, as I invite you into my kitchen.
I plan to share with you, more cookie recipes than you might know what to do with.
