Margy Bakes! Her Famous Ginger Cookies

I'm not really cheating, since this was pretty much our dinner. And Margy deserves a big hand for making her amazing ginger cookies again this year. They're crispy on the edges and chewy in the middle, and they offer a nice hit of spice. The icing is lemon juice mixed with confectioners sugar (as my sister said, you can't beat the combo of ginger and lemon).

We made the mistake of baking the cookies around 6:30pm -- by the time we had each sampled three or four, we were no longer in the mood for the pork chops I'd defrosted for dinner.

So we ate a few more cookies.

Yum -- they look great. Simple but decadent. We made some cookies on both Saturday and Sunday -- I think we're up to 3 kinds so far -- plus the gingerbread house!

Ho ho ho!
