Gingerbread men sandwiches

Now, this is a Christmas cookie!

These are just wonderful. They smell amazing and taste amazing! I can not decorate, so I made them into sandwich cookies. The best thing about the gingerbread cookie cutter – you can turn them into reindeer, just flip ’em upside down and perhaps place a red hot for a Rudolph nose.
