Sweets for a Saturday #49

I can't believe that Christmas is already this weekend. Hope you're having a wonderful holiday.

As for me, my quest for The Best Ginger Cookie by Christmas has finally ended! Twelve recipes, tons of taste testing, and cookies galore, and I've finally found some wonderful favorites that will be keepers. Wanna know which recipe won?

The Ginger Cookie Winner:

Now here's your Top 5:

1. Vanilla Crescents - Catalina Bakes

They look like they're covered with lightly fallen snow.

2. Festive Sugar Cookies - The Traveling Spoon

Perfect for any holiday platter

3. Birthday Cake Fudge - The Royal Cook

What a fun, fudgy idea!

4. Fudge Recipe Collection - Dreaming of White Chocolate

Tons of fudge recipes to make your mouth water.

5. Key Lime Fudge - The Royal Cook

So original!
