There is nothing that gets me more ready for christmas than baking (and eating!) christmas cookies. How can you beat the smell of gingerbread in the air and some hot chocolate along with cookie decorating? Oh, and let me tell you about the smell of gingerbread in the air when I made these cookies. They will go on your yearly must-bake-christmas-cookie-list, I guarantee you! Well, they are on mine now that’s for sure.
These little cuties are made of gingerbread spiced and dusted shortbread cookies filled with milk cream. The milk cream filling is super easy and so genius: white candy melts, milk, cream and butter! Compared to regular buttercream, this filling does not only taste very milky but holds up much better when unrefrigerated for a longer time. Perfect cookies to put out for Santa! Or – to just leave out on the table for the family until they’re gone… and they will be gone fast. Merry christmas!
