Lemon Ginger Sandwich Cookies from Lemons for Lulu


Jello and pudding mix certainly have their place.  They are fine mixed into baked goods, but for me that’s about it.  When my kids grow up, I’m sure they will remember Gammy’s Christmas Jello just like my husband does.  And they will remember Ya Ya’s baklava just  like I do.  But, Christmas for them will also be filled with buckeye balls, chocolate mint cookies, crinkle cookies, cake balls, coconut balls and ginger cookies.   I think these lemon ginger sandwich cookies will definitely stand out in their minds.    These molasses cookies are rolled in sugar then baked until soft.  The cookies are then used as bookends for a very creamy and tart lemon filling.  Yes, my days of yearning for Jello strawberries have gone.  I suspect that craving will permanently be replaced by these luscious lemon ginger sandwich cookies!
