Gingersnap Cookies

Gingersnap Cookies

I’m convinced these Gingersnap Cookies are the BEST ones out there with their perfect crispy on the outside and chewy in the center texture.  

There are typically two different kinds of Gingersnap Cookies in the world: soft baked ones, like my Ginger Molasses Cookies, and thinner, crispy ones. What I LOVE about this recipe is these Gingersnaps are the perfect balance of both; they’re crispy on the outside, but chewy in the center. They are the PERFECT Gingersnap Cookies, in my humble opinion.

Credit for this awesome recipe goes to my Mother-in-law, Brooke, who has been making them for decades, served with this delicious Pumpkin Dip.

 How to make Gingersnap Cookies:

Add butter and sugar to a mixing bowl and beat until well creamed together.
