    This is a delicious twist to your regular gingerbread! I think I even like it better than plain ol' gingerbread! Another one of those recipes where you just can't eat one! Time does not include chilling time!

      Glad I found this recipe again! I made it a few years ago and fell in love.

      This recipe made it into our Book #231450. 8/13/08 - I made a half batch of the mix and gave it (along with a copy of the recipe) for our neighbor as a thank you gift. They have graciously been keeping us in tomatoes and squash through out the summer. She was thrilled! I enjoyed making this gift as it reminded me of sand art back in Jr High school. Thanks for the memories and for a great little gift giving recipe! UPDATE: My neighbor brought some of the made cookies over. She said she didn't chill the dough, but just rolled them into 1" balls on a greased baking sheet. She then put a thumbprint in them to flatten, then sprinkled red sugar sprinkles in the indentation and baked as directed. As for the flavor of the cookies..... AWESOME!!!!

      Doubled this recipe so that I could make some for myself, but also gave a jar as a gift, along with a couple of special cookie cutters dangling from the jar's neck (& a copy of the recipe)! Sure it makes for a nice looking gift, but back to the cookies themselves ~ THESE ARE GREAT TASTING COOKIES (mine weren't decorated, but were devoured quickly!)
