Gingerdoodle Cookies

Gingerdoodle Cookies

I just finished all my final exams, and it’s time to celebrate – with these cookies to be exact!  Snickerdoodles and gingerbread cookies collide in this delightful holiday recipe!  These scrumptious treats have the best of both worlds… they are perfectly spiced and delightfully soft on the inside.

Plus, they are super fun and easy to make.  Rolling the dough balls brought back such happy memories of making snickerdoodles with my mom when I was younger.  It was always a tag-team activity, one person rolls and the other dips the dough balls in the cinnamon sugar.

Anyway, these gingerdoodles are a great dessert to bring to holiday gatherings.  I promise they will be a big hit, as I don’t think I’ve ever seen a dish vanish faster then when I brought these for my team!  With everyone grabbing seconds and thirds, I’ll have to make two batches next time.  Therefore, I advise stashing a few away in the freezer if you want to save any for yourself!  Enjoy 🙂
