My fervor for all things Christmas is amplified by being a Jew. Christmas is my forbidden fruit. The holiday holds a red & green, pine needle & peppermint-scented allure. I can't keep myself away from it. When hanukkah rolls around, I have to force myself to stifle reveries of stuffed stockings and Santa Claus back into a dark corner of my mind, one where Sugar Plum Fairies dance freely and Menorahs aren’t a thing. These cookies are what I fantasize I would leave for Santa if I celebrated the holiday. Flavored with ginger, cloves, nutmeg, and a little defiance, they scream Christmas, both appearance and taste-wise. I'm submitting this recipe as part of Drop's Holiday Recipe Swap!
