So, I have a confession to make. I’m not much of a cookie lover. I tend to like brownies and cakes more than cookies. Maybe I’m crazy.
But there’s one cookie that really floats my boat. Ginger cookies, gingersnaps, ginger crinkles…whatever you want to call them, they are my favorite! I’m sort of picky and only like the ones that are soft and chewy, not the hard crispy ones you buy in those boxes at the store. 😉
This recipe for ginger crinkles is my absolute favorite. I got the recipe from my cousin and make them just about every holiday season and during the other times of the year, too. Not only is the recipe super simple to throw together, but they taste absolutely amazing! Full of ginger and spices. Soft and chewy middles with just the tiniest of crispy edges.
They come out perfect every single time. This is such a foolproof recipe, even if you aren’t an experienced baker, you can make these. If you know how to measure ingredients, you can make these and they will turn out fantastic every time!
They’re one of the best cookies to make during the holidays. Put some of these into your holiday gift boxes, and your neighbors and kids’ teachers will love you!
