Cookie

1 1/4 cups sugar

1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

3 tablespoons mild molasses

3 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

2 teaspoons ground ginger

1 teaspoon baking soda

Decorations

10 ounces vanilla or chocolate-flavored candy coating (almond bark)

Decorator sprinkles or coarsely crushed starlight mint candies

10 (8- to 10-inch) thin wooden skewers, if desired

Large red and green gumdrops, if desired

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.
