Gingersnap Cookies

[wprm-recipe-jump]

Gingersnaps are one of my favorite Christmas Cookie Recipes – to eat, and to give away. They are soft, chewy with crispy edges, and are perfectly spiced to taste just like Christmas! I have made his recipe about three times already this year! They are so easy to make, and fill the house with such an amazing Christmassy smell.

But what really makes these Gingersnaps shine is the addition of Crystalized Ginger or Candied Ginger. I really like this one from Paradise Fruit Co. It is always fresh, and is the perfect combination of gingery-kick and sweet. They have a bunch of other great candied fruits, for cooking and baking, too!

A friend even said that these Gingersnaps helped with her morning sickness!
