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.

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.
