Gingery Ginger Snap Cookies. Full of ginger, crinkled to perfection and coated in sanding sugar. If ever there was a holiday cookie this is it!
I’m a true lover of Christmas but this year its like times 10. Im sure my daughters enthusiasm is contagious so we got the tree up, are listening to christmas music and I am all about the holidays in my baking. Which is where these Gingery Ginger Snap Cookies come in. If ever there was a cookie that tasted like the holidays this is it!! Warm spices, molasses, double ginger (gah!!) and a fabulous crusting of sugar crystals. Just look at these, is there anything better than that crinkle we’ve got going on?
I think the pics speak for themselves here guys so I am going to leave you to it and all the wonderful things you are doing to prepare for your perfect holiday! Make sure these cookies are on the list.
FORGOT TO PIN IT? Here you go! Thank you.
