Rainbow Gingerbread Men Sandwich Cookies

Christmas is only 24 days away! Time to get myself into the holiday spirit.  

Do you ever freeze extra dough for goodies and forget about it? I seem to do that a lot so when I was cleaning out the freezer the other day I came across some rainbow cookie dough.

I thought it would make some fun gingerbread men - kinda Candyland like.

I also found some frozen vanilla buttercream with rainbow non-pareils mixed in which made a great filling for the cookies.  (Did you know you can freeze frosting? Just thaw it and it's good to go.)

Add some Skittle candies as buttons and melted white chocolate for face/details and you're done.  These little guys are definitely putting me in the festive holiday spirit!

Rainbow gingerbread men have to make you smile, right??

And did I mention it's only 24 days to Christmas?? Time to get decorating, baking, and shopping! The kids have had their Santa lists ready for weeks now.  Thanks for stopping by and Happy Monday!
