The last day of Cookie Week is here!!! Cookie recipe number seven is my favorite fall cookie – Sweet and Spicy Gingerdoodle Cookies. The first time we made these was last spring for our 4-H canine club bake sale. Jasmine and I thought it would be a fun cookie because it sounds like a hybrid dog breed (I think it may actually be a breed). Our dog is a Cockapoo so Jasmine decided it was the perfect choice. In case you haven’t guessed it yet, this cookie is a hybrid of a Gingersnap and a Snickerdoodle.
You start with a fantastically spiced molasses gingersnap and then roll it in cinnamon sugar before baking. The result is a beautifully soft and spicy cookie with a layer of cinnamon sugar crunch on the outside. The Sweet and Spicy Gingerdoodle Cookie is easily my favorite cookie for this season. They are easy to bake, easier to eat and perfect for parties and gifts! I adapted this recipe from these Gingersnap Cookies with Eggnog Frosting on Carlsbad Cravings.
