The L&T editors adored Lyn Chapman's crispy spice cookies so much, that they asked the Test Kitchen to create a light creamy frosting to go with them. "My husband loves ginger snaps and gingerbread," Lyn writes from Provo, Utah. "He was delighted when I made these cookies since they offered a ginger flavor but with a new twist." At only 1 gram of fat a piece, the whimsical treats make an ideal addition to a Christmas cookie platter or New Year's dessert buffet.
