Virtual Cookie Exchange Blog Hop Day 2

This is my 4th year participating in the Virtual Cookie Exchange Blog Hop. It’s always so much fun seeing what kind of cookie everyone chooses to share. Thank you Carol of Just Let Me Quilt for hosting every year and doing such a great job!

This year we could choose to bake, make, or both. I’m still dealing with current health issues so decided to just bake.

I wanted to make a cookie this year that was big on spice. So I went with Gingersnaps. Since I had never made Gingersnap cookies I decided on a recipe promising a soft, chewy cookie from Food Blogging couple Maria and Josh who run Two Peas & Their Pod. If you haven’t tried any of their recipes, this one is a great one to start with. So far any recipe of theirs I’ve tried has been yummy.

The link to the recipe for Soft Gingersnap Cookies.

I didn’t alter the ingredients for the cookie dough. What I did do was use as many organic ingredients as I could. None of these companies sponsored me. I just wanted to show which ones I used. Using organic ingredients has made lot of difference in how I feel physically.

Buying organic is a choice I’m making for myself. I say this cause buying organic can be costly and I don’t anyone to feel pressure. I only want to share.

Okay, now about the recipe.

The cookie dough was a perfect mixture and doesn’t need refrigeration before use.

You can form dough balls by hand or with a scoop. I did roll them in organic powered sugar rather than the granulated sugar the recipe called for. For me this was perfect.

I then flatten them with the bottom of a drinking glass.

Maria and Josh promise you a soft, chewy cookie that is perfectly spiced and it does deliver.

I love these Gingersnap cookies! They are so good. We ate a dozen while baking up the other 2 dozen. Really, they are that good. But hey, that’s okay right?  lol

It does make up approx. 3 dozen.

I have loved sharing this recipe with you. I know if you love spiced cookies, you will want to add this recipe to your Christmas baking list.

Have a fun day hopping,

  1. That looks like a great cookie! I’m glad I finally found it. LOL It reminds me of another cookie, in looks, that I can eat like that – just down a dozen while a dozen more are cooking! There is nothing as great as a good cookie!

  2. Hubby loves gingersnap cookies and swears that they keep him for getting motion sick, so we travel with them a lot. The older I get the more aches and pains I have organic and GF is a road I am considering. It will be interesting to see if it makes a difference. Have a very Merry Christmas!

  3. I’ve never made gingersnaps but they do look like my kind of cookie. I have the habit of eating the first batch before I finish too, no matter what the cookie is. lol I’m glad I finally found your post. For some reason, I had the wrong link. Sorry, I’m a little late to your cookie party. Merry Christmas!

  5. I love gingersnaps!! I’ll have to make these because they are soft and with enough flavor that my 97 year old father will be able to taste and chew them!! Thank you for sharing the recipe and I pray you are feeling much better soon!

  6. Hi Theresa! Oh man, I can just imagine how your house smelled while you were making these. ~The~smells~wafting~about~ had to be heavenly. Thank you for sharing the recipe! I love the shots of your ceramic trees – I have one my SIL made for my mother back in the 70s I’m guessing. I always loved it and still display it, although it is missing a few lights in the shape of a bulb. Happy Happy Wednesday to you. ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Thank you! They did smell as wonderful as they tasted. The ceramic tree is my Christopher Radko cookie jar I’ve had for over 14yrs. Gives a wonderful vintage look to my kitchen. Thanks for stopping by.

Yes, it’s a bit pricier, but worth it if it helps. You’ve been a part of my cookie hops for so many years…thank you tons for being here! xo

  8. hehe. I’m laughing because you ate the first dozen before the others were baked! That must be a terrific cookie. Looking forward to trying them! They look must softer than a traditional snap so I bet they are delicious!
