Classic snickerdoodle cookies and gingersnaps collide in this new favorite cookie.
Heat oven to 400°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
Combine all cinnamon dough ingredients in bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Divide dough in half; place into separate bowls. Set aside one bowl.
Add molasses to remaining bowl of dough; beat until well mixed. Combine 1/4 cup flour, ginger and cloves in another bowl. Add to molasses mixture. Beat at low speed until well mixed.
Twist about 3/4-inch pieces of each dough together; roll into about 1 1/4-inch ball, creating marbled effect. Roll ball in sugar.
Place, 2 inches apart, onto prepared baking sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 2 minutes on baking sheet; transfer to cooling rack.

These are amazing. I made this for a cookie contest at work and I won! (no cash involved, sadly, just my picture on the company intranet page). I had tons of people ask for the recipe, so I just gave them the link.
Wow. I have been a county fair foods judge for 30 yrs. and I can tell you, in my estimation , after having tasted thousands of cookies, these are the best cookies I have ever eaten. I have never seen them at a fair. I baked mine to "soft centers" instead of crisp and "snappy". Love the soft center.
I have made these cookies a couple of times now, and they are a crowd pleaser! They look and taste great. I've had a lot of requests for the recipe. I love booth snickerdoodles and ginger cookies, and it's so nice not to have to choose!
Easy and delicious! I love the combination of flavors. I used coarse sugar to roll them in and it gave a nice crunch to the outside of the cookie.
I always go to Land O Lakes because it has the best tasting recipes and this one is no exception, but I must say something about this cookie. Rolling dough is my favorite way to make cookies but I had trouble with getting the swirl to look neat and not shaggy. Next time I would prefer to make either gingersnaps or snickerdoodles.
I could not get my cookies to have a nice swirl effect like pictured. The taste was OK but not my favorite. Will not be making again.
Yum! They are super easy and look so neat. Definitely a new Christmas cookie must-have!
This was so easy! So much fun! and very delicious! I have everyone I know trying them.

This year, my grandson Clark is 3 years old, so I wanted to make some cookies that he would love to eat and would find to be fun, too. These adorable Powdered Sugar Snowmen Cookies are just the ticket.
Chocolate’s complex flavor brings out the sweetness and tanginess of fruit, mellows the heat of peppers, and comes alive when introduced to a little bit of salt. The real question should be, “What can’t you dip in chocolate?” More ...
