Happy Friday! This week went by so quick! It is also soon December and I am really looking forward to my mom and my step-father visiting for Christmas! I’m really curious to see what the weather will be during that time, hopefully not to much snow;) For now it’s been raining a lot and we even had some snow.
With the holiday season just around the corner I am starting to think of baking cookies, there are so many yummy cookies and I would like to try them all, unfortunately it is usually just to much for the 4 of us, lol.
I ring in the weekend with my Gingerbread Latte and made some Gingerbread Oatmeal Cookie Sandwiches. I just spiced up my go-to oatmeal cookie recipe, added some molasses and gingerbread spice, so delicious! Buttercream filling is optional, they are very tasty without, but there is just something about cookie sandwiches! Love the smell of all these spices!!
