Ginger Pennies ( Rose Levy Beranbaum)

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Connie K

From Beranbaum's 'Rose's Christmas Cookies' book, this makes a TON of tiny ginger cookies! Great for holiday parties and open houses. I'd made these as part of a cookie tray for our holiday house tour supporting the historic district in which I live. It takes a while to pipe out all the cookies, but you can get LOTS on one sheet. They last for months in an airtight container - I had mine in plastic zip bags. Times are estimates. Makes at LEAST 25 dozen tiny chip-like cookies.

This is my family's favorite Christmas Cookie. They call me every day to see if I have made them yet. And I have to make at least 3 batches.
