Christmas season is in full swing already! We are having our Christmas party a week before Thanksgiving since we have such a Blessed Large family. So I need some different types of cookies and I came across these beautiful cookies and had to make them! And I'm so glad I did, my Aunt Bea LOVED them!!!! Hope these find their way to your next Christmas get together!! Enjoy

These are so yummy and adorable! They sorta taste like gingerbread, but not as strong. The white chocolate compliments the ginger and spices perfectly. These would be great if you're going to a cookie exchange or as gifts. They're super easy to make and look impressive. The Test Kitchen

  6. Using a spoon to help cover each cookie half way, place on waxed paper, add sprinkles, allow to dry completely
