I love the holiday season! I am just loving the warmer-cooler weather we have been having lately. The subtle chill in the air is crisp and feels fantastic.

With the cooler temperatures, I do a lot of baking at my house. I love the wonderful spice smells that fill my kitchen.

These Gingerbread and Cream Cookie Sandwiches are such a delightful treat! I love the softness and chewiness of the cookies paired with a creamy frosting center.

These cookies are a must try this holiday season! They truly are a fantastic treat! And if you are looking g for similarly flavored desserts, give these Gingersnaps or this Gingersnap Spice Cake a try!
