The Gift of Good Taste: Sugared Ginger Cookies

Tue, August 20, 2013

Though she’s a busy artist {she creates gifts and decor during the biggest gift giving time of the year}, Coton Colors Founding Artist, Laura Johnson loves to express her artistry and creativity at the holidays. For Laura, it’s a family affair!

Gathering together with family and friends always inspires her Coton Colors creations… Her gift-giving is no different.


Spending time in the Christmas kitchen with her three daughters is a tradition at the Johnson house. It’s a chance for the ladies to join forces, creating delicious foods and thoughtful gifts at the same time while having a bit of fun too!


Each holiday season, Laura challenges the girls to contribute their own tastes to Christmas, which sometimes leads to full-blown laughter as they try out the recipes of their choosing. {Of course, there have been a few flops along the way.}

This year, the chosen recipe for their tasty tidings was from our very own Visual Design Manager’s mother. As pretty as they are delicious, we decided to feature these Sugared Ginger Cookies in our The Happy Everything Cookbook.


So make your list, check it twice and spread some Christmas cheer with sugar and spice! Both fragrant and festive, these magical Sugared Ginger Cookies are like none you’ve ever tasted!
