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.

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 past weekend was glorious! We had perfect weather for catching up on our yard work. We spent all of Saturday afternoon weeding and tending to our overgrown “problem” areas. Ryan’s mom, Becky, was even so kind as to come over and play with our toddler so that he could be outside, too – without getting too close to the clipping shears and other dangerous tools.

ginger and sesame to a
