I LOVE spice cookies.  There are some super yummy ones at my local grocery store that I’ve been trying to duplicate for a while now and I think I’ve finally found a recipe that is pretty close.  I whipped them up for a little gathering a week ago and they were a hit! 🙂  Here’s the ginger cookie recipe in case you want to give them a try. 🙂
