Debbie Amareno, The balls are colored because you roll them in baking glitters or sprinkles before you cook them. The dough is white. This is a very simple recipe and they taste great without the ginger filling. My kids prefer them with vanilla filling or just plain.
I have a question - how did the balls become colored? It doesn't say in the recipe and I'm very much a beginner and follow recipes to the tee at the point. Thanks so much!

These cookies turned out great! I just picked up baking, so I'm still a beginner, but they weren't too difficult for me! The creamy ginger filling is AMAZING, but I thought the (great) taste of the cookie overpowered it a bit. The recipe says to just use enough filling to to allow them to stick together, but I ended up with 1/2 cup extra. Next time I'll use more filling and probably taste it more.
I will definitely make these again and give them as gifts!
