Ginger Chip Spice Cookies are filled with the flavors of the holiday season. They’re easy to make and are a great addition to a holiday cookie platter!
Cookies, cookies everywhere! With the landslide of sweeties I’ve been posting, you’d think that all we eat around here are sweets.
There’s something about the holidays that brings out the baker in me. Baking cookies, cakes and pastries, truffles, turtles and sprinkling Spritz cookies with glitter puts me in the holiday spirit faster than just about anything!
These ginger chip spice cookies are a little bit spicy, soft and chewy with a crunch of crystallized ginger.
Perfect on any holiday cookie platter. I bought my Crystallized Ginger Chips at World Market, but you can also purchase them here. (affiliate link)
