Gingerbread Everything! Is my motto during the holiday season. Also, it’s the only time adding icing or frosting to everything seems acceptable. I created these amazing Peanut Butter – Gingerbread cookie sandwiches to set off the season. The warm spices pair gorgeously with the light nutty peanut butter flavor. The icing filling will easily become your favorite PB go-to for all things merry and bright.
