Five-spice powder and ginger add an Asian twist to these bite-sized shortbread cookies.
Combine butter, sugar and egg yolk in bowl; beat at medium speed until well mixed. Add flour and five-spice powder; beat at low speed until mixture starts to hold together; stir in ginger. Knead dough slightly until it is easy to shape.
Divide dough in half; shape each half into 6-inch log. Wrap each in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 30 minutes or until firm.
Heat oven to 350°F.
Cut each log into 24 equal slices with serrated knife using sawing motions. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets, patting into shape if necessary. Bake 8-11 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.
Combine powdered sugar and water in bowl until smooth. Spread glaze in thin layer over each cookie. Let stand 5 minutes or until set.
Add food color to melted candy coating; mix until tinted. Spoon into bottom of small resealable plastic food bag; cut off small end of corner. Pipe tree shape on top of each glazed cookie by squeezing coating through hole. Let stand until set.

These cookies were perfect even after Christmas
I made these cookies 3 times in the past 2 weeks. My husband just loves them. I left the frosting off and made balls and rolled them in cinnamon sugar and flattened them with a glass. I also made them and used almond extract in them insted of the five spice and rolled them in powdered sugar when cooled. They are the BEST!!!
What a wonderful recipe! Easy to make, a snap to bake and decorate! Thanks!
My cookies were very delicious, especially with tea. However, mine came out a bit too tender to transport well.

We recently developed a recipe for a Yule Log Cake for our 2014 Holiday Brochure. In my family, our holiday traditions revolved around cut-out cookies; a Yule Log was never part of the mix. So I was intrigued and did a little bit of research to see what this was all about.
