Gingerbread Crinkle Cookies For the Holidays

Gingerbread Crinkle Cookies

What treats do you like to bake for the holidays? Baking Christmas cookies was a tradition I shared with my grandmother growing up, so I’m always looking to add a new recipe to her famous cookbook. These gingerbread crinkle cookies are worthy of an inclusion in any cookbook. The cookies are simple to make and have that classic holiday taste. Be sure to enjoy a refreshing glass of milk with indulging in one of the cookies!

    I remember the smell of gingerbread cookies baking when I was a kid. Now that I am OLD… I can’t eat sugar products. I really miss a good cookie during the Holidays. Your cookies look like they turned out FANTASTIC!

    These sound amazing! I love gingerbread anything! Last week we made pepperkake (which is the Norwegian version of gingerbread) but I think I will definitely have to try to make these.
