Holiday Cookies

Love this cookie - with soft tender dough - it carries the flavor of toppings well.  Made these with a small dollop of jam/jelly.  I used to taste these during the holidays made by other bakers who commonly covered them with a lemon zest icing.  I can see these any shape and size, decorated like ginger bread cookies for Christmas.  It is just an overall great soft cookie treat.
