Soft Gingersnap Cookies-these cookies are a holiday favorite. Add them to your Christmas cookie baking list now!
I know we haven’t celebrated Thanksgiving yet, but I am already in Christmas mode. We don’t have our tree up yet, but I have started baking Christmas cookies. I just couldn’t wait any longer. Over the weekend, I made my favorite Soft Gingersnap Cookies. They are seriously the BEST holiday cookies. You can’t have the holidays without them. I make them every year and every year I fall in love all over again.
I love this recipe because the cookies are perfectly spiced and super soft. To get perfectly soft cookies, take them out at 8 minutes. They won’t look done, but just trust me, they are ready to come out of the oven. Let them sit on the hot baking sheet for a few minutes and then transfer them to a cooling rack. The cookies will set up as the cool and then you will have a batch of super soft gingersnap cookies.
Our house smelled amazing while the cookies were baking. The ginger, cinnamon, and molasses smell filled each room with holiday cheer.
Kick off your Christmas baking with these classic Soft Gingersnap Cookies. Your friends and family will love them! They are a holiday favorite at our house.

I originally posted this recipe in 2009, but updated the post and photos because it is one of our favorite recipes. Enjoy!
