Soft and chewy, perfectly spiced Snickerdoodle Gingersnap Cookies with intoxicatingly delicious Eggnog Frosting are melt in your mouth irresistible! Our favorite Christmas Cookie and the only gingersnap cookie recipe you will ever need!
If you aren’t sure you like gingersnap cookies, I am pretty convinced these will make a lover out of you. I brought a stack of cookies to my dad and he couldn’t stop eating them as he admitted, “and I don’t even like gingersnap cookies!”
This family favorite Gingersnap Cookie recipes comes from my mother-in-law who got it out of a newspaper in 1979. It has made generations of family, friends and neighbors smile with cookie cheer then begged for the recipe. While the cookie dough itself is almost 100% original recipe, I just couldn’t resist adding a few festive touches that make these cookies (and you!) all the merrier…
The deeply, rich molasses, ginger, cinnamon and cloves dough gets rolled in cinnamon and sugar that crystallizes as the cookies bake so every bite is soft and chewy inside, cinnamon and sugar snickerdoodle outside.
You can devour the cookies just like that – and they will make you smile or you can proceed to smother them with luscious, creamy and smooth eggnog infused frosting – and they will make you giddy!
