Growing up, I hated ginger, with a passion. My mom would make chai with tons of ginger in it when it was winter time and I’d refuse to drink it. The burn just was too much for my tiny pre-pubescent taste buds. Oh how things have changed as I’ve grown older. I feel like there are so many flavors and ingredients that I’ve grown to love. Some things I’m now obsessed with but used to hate are: cilantro, turmeric, and eggs (yes, I hated eggs, the texture always just threw me off).
This year I decided to go all in with ginger with these cinnamon gingerdoodles! A tiny riff on a snickerdoodle!
I also sweetened my cookies with date syrup! My friend, Sylivia, recently came out with Just Date Syrup which is made with California medjool dates! I love supporting my fellow #LadyBosses, so I wanted share her amazing product with you guys! It’s a great substitute for sugar or maple syrup. Also you can use it as a vegan substitute for honey!
I love me a good snickerdoodle. Soft, slightly chewy with a nice sugary outside! I decided to give my regular snickerdoodles a spicier kick with ginger! These cookies ended up being super soft and they just melted in my mouth. I definitely recommend using candied ginger in these cookies! Don’t skip out on this! They really make a huge difference in flavor and scent!
