Ceecee's Ginger Snaps with Lemon Buttercream
"his is my Mom's ginger snap recipe but I have sandwiched two of them between a light and flavorful lemon butter cream. Lemon and ginger are AMAZING together. I especially like this combination in a Christmas cookie because it is a great contrast to the season's heavy meals and flavors. Tip: These are also great straight out of the freezer! Almost like an ice cream sandwich :)"—Ceecee L.

Laura's Iced Hermits
"Iced Hermits may not be the first thing that comes to mind when talking about ginger desserts, but they are one of my favorites. The ginger spiced blondie bar is enhanced with crystallized ginger and raisins to mellow the spiciness. The bars are then topped with frosting and more crystallized ginger for a serious ginger kick. If you love ginger, Iced Hermits will be your new favorite too."—Laura D.
