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.
