6. Gingerbread Cookie Bars

What you are looking at here is a cake type of bar very reminiscent of gingerbread.  Moist and filled with spice and molasses with plenty of cinnamon and ginger and cloves.

There is more deliciousness to be found. But . . .  I have chosen to top that lush cream cheese frosting with little bits of candied ginger root and toasted walnuts. It’s just too delicious to resist and one of the best New Years desserts ever.
