Gingerbread Sandwich Cookies with Vanilla Buttercream

This festive take on a classic soft gingerbread cookie is my take on the popular cookie sold at Trader Joe’s every year at the holidays! Soft gingerbread is my favorite type of gingerbread. Of course I love those cute little gingerbread men, but they never seem to be as delicious as I want them to be. A soft gingerbread cookie is a lot like a snickerdoodle with a bit more spice! And of course you have that rich, molasses flavor that is a must in gingerbread!

Why Gingerbread Sandwich Cookies? 

Why not?? Why have one cookie when you can have two…plus the addition of creamy, sweet filling on the inside. They’re basically a whole dessert! The buttercream pairs beautifully with the spiced gingerbread cookie. You could even use a delicious cream cheese frosting as well, that would be such a great pairing! These are a fun way to switch up your usual Christmas Cookies.
