Soft and tender on the inside and slightly crisp on the outside these Ginger Spice Cookies pair perfectly with a glass of milk. Make some for Santa!!!
They're home for holiday break so have fun and bake Ginger Spice Cookies!!!
From the measuring of the ingredients, forming balls and rolling them in sugar to having fun decorating them, it's a fun math and reading activity. Your little ones will have fun making and eating them.
These cookies are soft and tender on the inside and slightly crisp on the outside because of the sugar. Pairs perfectly with a glass of milk.
I have been a cookie baking Mama lately baking batches upon batches for the Food Blogger Cookie Swap and baking cookies for gift giving to the mail carriers, Fedex, UPS and teachers. These Ginger Spice Cookies are among one of my favorites recipes. It takes a lot of will power to not eat the entire batch, yeah they're that good.
So heat up your ovens, call in your kids, make a list of gift recipients and get baking. Don't forget to save some for Santa.
