Have always loved these cookies and make them for Christmas each year. I take a can of cream cheese frosting (tint 1/2 with green and 1/2 with red food coloring) and then frost the cookies. MMMMMM

These cookies are GREAT!!! They almost melt in you mouth. For Christmas, I made a frosting with butter and confectioners sugar and vanilla. I frosted the cookies and put sprinkles on them. Wonderful.

The recipe is called ginger cream cookies but there is no recipe for the cream icing. I lost my recipe.
