Cookie #6: Roger Mooking's Snappy Ginger Cookies

By: Melanie Rehak

Cooking Channel is joining Food Network for our first annual cookie swap, 12 Days of Cookies. Each day, visit us here for a look at new holiday cookies, party-planning tips and top techniques for rolling, spooning, slicing, baking and decorating delicious sweet treats to give — or keep — from favorite chefs and Food People. Then visit FoodNetwork.com/12daysofcookies for great takes on holiday baking from Food Network chefs — cookies by the dozen to celebrate all season.

Roger Mooking banishes the reliable gingerbread cookie this year for a holiday cookie sandwich! Sink your teeth into his Snappy Ginger Cookies.

These thin, delicate treats combine crystallized ginger with almonds and pecans for an extra satisfying crunch. Then they're  sandwiched around a dried cranberry-cream cheese filling so rich and tangy you'll want to make extra so you can spread it on everything.

12 Days of Cookies:
Have you made cookie sandwiches before? What was your fave?

Melanie Rehak, author of Eating for Beginners, has been baking cookies since she was old enough to climb onto the kitchen stool. She's partial to Zimtsterne—cinnamon stars—for the holidays, but loves most cookies all year long.
