Our family has been making these cookies at Christmastime for quite a few years, so I was surprised when I realized I had yet to blog the recipe! Cordelia helped me make a batch the other night, and I plan on making another batch this weekend. We enjoyed snacking on a few of these while watching Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.
Ginger Crinkles are crackly and crisp on the outside, but soft and chewy on the inside and just bursting with flavor. The ginger pairs so beautifully with the sugar on the outside of the cookie. I just love how pretty they look with all their cracks and shimmery sugar!
