      These Xmas Gingerbread Cookies. Gotta love them. I love the GingerBread spice. Its got some tang, & some zest, but still all good. I love the gingerbread in my coffee, hot drinks & milk too.

      During the cold Fall & Winter months, I like to make a gingerbread flavored coffee, using an instant coffee, pumpkin pie spice, molasses, some half-and-half cream, and topped with either Cool Whip or Reddi Wip & a light sprinkle of ground nutmeg. It's quite delish!!

      Shortie, if you'd like to lighten up the flavor of the cookies, instead of using an unsulphured molasses (which has a strong molasses taste), use a mild molasses, such as ...
