Gingerdoodle cookies: Your favorite soft snickerdoodle cookie with a seasonal gingerbread twist. A great addition to your holiday baking!
Ever since the Mr introduced me to Pandora ages ago, I’ve been completely obsessed. Whenever my phone is plugged in while I’m in the kitchen, music is playing. I have a few stations that I rotate between with a bunch of others that are fun on occasion but my most recent station love is Kate Voegele. Most people probably know her from the show One Tree Hill. I just love her singing. She’s fun and different from many others out there.
So anyway… when I added that station, for some reason it never occurred to me that songs from the show would eventually start playing. When a song from Bethany Joy Lenz came on, I got all nostalgic wanting to go and watch a One Tree Hill marathon. I promise it’ll happen… and maybe even from season one because that would really be the only right way to do it. Of course, I still want to do a full blown Friends marathon from the very beginning. I’ve been talking about doing that forever and it has yet to happen. So we’ll see how long it takes me to actually do a marathon of One Tree Hill.
Of course when the time finally comes to do a marathon, I might (okay … I’ll definitely) need a batch of these gingerdoodle cookies to satisfy my sweet tooth. I have a strong love for snickerdoodle cookies. But not the thin crunchy stiff kind. I like mine soft and fluffy with a nice crunchy sugar coating. That to me is the perfect snickerdoodle. I’ve made the classic snickerdoodle and even a pumpkin snickerdoodle cookie, so it seemed fitting to finally make a version for the Christmas baking season.
These gingerdoodles are basically a gingerbread snickerdoodle. Light and fluffy on the inside with a crisp cinnamon-sugar coating. The perfect seasonal twist to a classic cookie!
