These soft batch gingersnap cookies were created because everyone should be able to have the perfect cookie — perfectly spiced, but with a soft, chewy texture. Yes, I love gingersnaps, but I want them to be a little less, well, snappy. I wanted the same gingery goodness wrapped in a soft batch cookie. Not to much to ask, right?
Just yesterday our family was enjoying lunch around the table. We were reminiscing about our families and how my husband and I grew up on store-bought or ready-to-bake cookies. We were telling the kids about the prepared refrigerated cookie dough (they never see that in our fridge, so they were completely confused.) Their inquisitive looks finally burst into a question, “Were the cookies good?” My husband quickly answered with a, “The store bought dough is not like your mom’s homemade cookies! Hers are waaaaay better!”
And it’s not just about “my homemade cookies.” It’s about your homemade cookies too! Once your family gets a taste of homemade cookies every month or two, they won’t even bother heading down the cookie aisle…unless it’s for a package of Oreos. Everyone loves store-bought Oreos. ;0)
Oh, and I almost forgot to tell you! I’ve included a homemade lemon glaze you can add to these cookies if you want to fancy them up a smudge or two. It adds just the perfect dash of citrus to these cookies! And makes them look all prettied up for the holidays! Cookie exchange anyone?
When I started baking cookies I had no idea how simple they were to make! I couldn’t help falling in love with all the variety of cookies I could make! Snowball cookies are a hit at Christmas. Cake mix cookies are perfect when I’m pinched for time. Gluten-free peanut butter sandwich cookies are perfect for guests with special diets. You can find a homemade cookie for almost any occasion!
