These apple pie ginger cookies are soft & chewy with just the right amount of spice. Plus they make your house smell like heaven!
Hello there! Today I get to share with you these Apple Pie Ginger Cookies that I sent to three lovely bloggers. I participated in The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap this year and I am SO GLAD I did. Not only did I get to play around in the kitchen, but I also got to share my creation with 3 fellow food bloggers. It was a little bit intimidating but so fun and nice to step out of my comfort zone a bit.
I also received cookies from 3 food bloggers and oh my word were they all so delicious!! I couldn’t stop eating them!!
I tossed a few cookie ideas around and ask Mr. Right for his opinion and we went with Apple Pie Ginger Cookies. They were a huge hit with Mr. Right and the kiddos, and I even brought some extras to my parents house for the holidays and my dad wouldn’t stay out of them.
These cookies are thinner, even though I used bread flour, but they weren’t crispy, which I personally loved. I don’t really care for crispy cookies, I prefer soft and chewy.
