One good idea often leads to another. That's certainly the case with this tasty craft that began with a favorite cookie at Pat's house. Pat's delightful gingerbread recipe came across our Test Kitchen's desk not long ago. We knew it was a "winner"—but what caught our eye was her note about the piles of cookies she and her family traditionally cut out each Christmas. That got all of us thinking in a crafty direction. We soon started piling up our own cookies in the shape of this Christmas tree! Before you know it, we had another "Crafting with Taste" project to pass along. Not only does this centerpiece make an attractive table topper, you don't need to worry about dessert when you craft it. Just pass the plate around your dinner table and let guests dig in!

My biscotti won a blue ribbon at our county fair. It even changed my best friend's mind about biscotti, which she thought was nothing more than stale bread. They have a great gingerbread flavor and are crunchy on the outside and chewy in the center. —Karen Pavlov, Canfield, Ohio

The first time we made these ginger macaroons, we felt like they were missing something. Once we adjusted the spices and added a buttery molasses filling, we had ourselves a sandwich cookie we couldn't get enough of! —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
