Gingerdoodles Are The Ultimate Christmas Cookie!

Warm, buttery, a little spiced, perfect with a glass of Wassell or Mulled Wine, Gingerdoodles are the perfect holiday cookie recipe. The idea of curling up on the sofa with a cup of tea and one of these cookies makes my heart feel ALL the Christmas vibes!

What Are Gingerdoodles?

Gingerdoodles are basically Gingerbread Snickerdoodles….a delicious, SOFT Gingerbread cookie rolled in cinnamon sugar. And yes, there is cream of tartar in the cookie recipe making them a true mash-up of the two!

It’s a fun-named cookie that will round out your holiday cookie platter perfectly! I know you have so many sugar cookies

How Do You Make Gingerdoodles?

These cookies are SUPER easy, require no chill time and only take about 20 minutes from start to finish to have warm cookies ready to be enjoyed.

Also they can be made ahead! You can freeze the dough before baking OR freeze the cookies.

How To Freeze Gingerdoodle Cookies

To freeze them after the are baked, simply place them carefully in a ziptop bag or airtight container for up to a month.

If you would like to freeze the dough,prep the ingredients and follow the instructions 1-5, before baking. Freeze the dough balls on a baking sheet for 30-60 minutes until solid. Then place the dough balls into a zip-top bag and freeze for up to 30 days!

If you bake the cookie dough from frozen just add a few extra minutes to the bake time!

How To Store These So They Will Stay Fresh

If you’re looking to make these in advance that’s totally fine! Follow the steps above if you would like to make them more than 3 or so days ahead. If you would like to make these and give out to friends as part of a cookie platter they will stay soft and fresh for about 3-ish days.

Just make sure they are stored airtight in a container or bag, and you should be good!
