What’s the first food-related item that comes to mind when I think of Christmas? My Dad’s ginger cookies. He made them every year along with his sugar cut-out cookies.

I’ve been working on our Christmas cards this past week. Each card is getting a recipe for these sweet treats inserted in them. If you’re not on our list, I’ve included the recipe below.
