Chocolate Gingersnap Cookies


Chocolate Gingersnap Cookies

Holiday baking not only means sticking with traditional recipes but also trying new ones. I wanted to do something for the guys at work, and what better way than with Chocolate Gingersnap Cookies. I was so excited almost every single cookie came out perfectly round, the same size, and with a nice crack. Very yummy too. The chocolate helps mute the gingerbread flavor slightly, so those who aren’t crazy about gingerbread can find them more enjoyable. Don’t get me wrong – you can still taste both flavors. They are also crunchy on the edges and soft in the middle.
