    QueenJellyBean's Note:

    This is such a wonderful twist on holiday gingerbread cookies! I cut these out with cookie cutters and dust them lightly with powdered sugar after removing them from the cookie sheet after baking. Can also be decorated with decorator icing. I believe the recipe is from a Land O' Lakes grocery store impulse buy cookbook that my mom picked up one holiday season.
