1 tablespoon ground ginger
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

My favorite holiday cookie was created by my dear friend Gary, who is the daddy of my Goddaughter: Ginger cookie with lemon curd; two things I love. The cookie itself is irresistible. When I put the lemon curd on it, I'm in trouble! This cookie is light and delicious and very enticing on a holiday platter. If you want to make it ahead simply store the plain cookies in an airtight container and dust with powdered sugar and fill with curd just before serving.
