cozy december: ginger cookies

Hello, dears! Cozy December is just around the corner, time to focus on pleasant things to do this upcoming magical month. I've made a list of "needs" for December (to don't forget, hahaha), like create playlist with favourite christmas and smooth jazz music, spend cozy evenings watching kind movies, fall into christmas mood, notice beauty of simple things like snowflakes (actually it's snowing right now!), feel feast and love, gift wrapping, coffee dates, mulled wine, and of course delicious sweets.
I've baked this star- and heart- shaped oatmeal ginger cookies few days ago, and it was very aromatic and tasty, so I began to turn on "right mood"! The recipe is easy, don't hesitate to use it! And please, share your favourite recipes with me, I always search for the new ones!
