Soft & Chewy Gingersnaps

Good Morning Everyone!

Are you making your list yet for your Christmas baking? I’ve been thinking which of our favorites will make the “cut” this year. Every year, my mom, sisters and I each make our favorite cookies, squares and other sweets so you can imagine how many goodies there are to share when we get together for Christmas. A. Lot. These cookies HAVE to be included as they’ve definitely become a favorite!

 Today, I’ll share one of the oldest cookies in the book with you, but I think it’s the best recipe ever! If you like a soft and chewy cookie, this is the recipe you’ve been looking for!

These cookies will stay soft even after 4 or 5 days. Not that they’ll last that long! They have the perfect blend of spices and are so delicious with a cold glass of milk, or in my case, a steaming cup of tea!

    We have so many of the same tastes in food! (well, except for cotton candy-lol!) I love gingersnaps too! I’ve never made these cookies from scratch. I’ve always purchased the ready to mix bag at the grocery store. I just might have to try my hand at making them this year though. Your recipe sounds and looks delicious!!
