Christmas Gingerbread Cookies Recipe
This Christmas Oatmeal Gingerbread Cookies Recipe uses cookie butter.
It's found in the peanut butter aisle and it's made of ground up cookies.
It's amazing if you haven't ever had it! I think Trader Joes is probably my favorite brand of cookie butter, but I'd love to hear if you have a favorite yourself!
Wouldn't it be fun to make a batch of these cookies, wrap them up really pretty, and give them to someone as a gift with the recipe and a jar of cookie butter?
I used to make cookie recipe kits for family members all of the time, it was really fun and inexpensive!
Everyone loves homemade gifts, and I bet your family and friends would love something so thoughtful and homemade right now, seeing as how COVID has made everyone's lives a bit more difficult this year!
The holidays are always about togetherness, and we can't really embrace that this year, can we?
Let's just all try a tiny bit harder to be kind and show our love in other ways - like giving homemade gifts!
