Growing up, I used to love eating gingersnaps! I remember pulling these cookies out of store bought boxes and munching on them, one after another, until they were gone. Although they were tasty treats, I distinctly remember them as being noticeably hard and almost stale like. Then I thought to myself, what would these taste like if they were soft and chewy? A "soft" gingersnap? The answer lies in this chewy ginger cookie recipe!
This chewy ginger cookie recipe is one of my absolute favorites. It's a perfect holiday treat! It's soft, chewy, crunchy, and packed with just enough spice to live up to its name. This cookie recipe produces cookies that have all the same traits as its tougher gingersnap cousin, except that it's chewy. It has the signature gingersnap cookie crack look, the nice full ginger taste, and even a little spice kick at the end. The cookie is also rolled in Turbinado sugar (also known as sugar in the raw) which gives the cookie some additional texture and a nice pleasant crunch. So dig in! Find out what a freshly baked "soft" gingersnap tastes like!
