Make Ginger O’s at home! You’ll love these spicy ginger cookies, especially paired with vanilla frosting!
Snack time, otherwise known as tea time, is absolutely mandatory in my house. & it’s my favorite part of the day. All day I look forward to savoring the week’s treat – whether it be a cookie, pie, cake or muffin.
But I don’t really remember what snacks I had growing up. I do remember the occasional ice cream cone (!) and my dad tricking me with his “homemade” pumpkin cookies (that weren’t homemade at all!)
Another treat that stands out are Ginger O’s. I was pretty amazed at first that a sandwich cookie other than Oreos existed! I remember passing the package around and not wanting to stop with just two!
The Ginger O love continued in college. My parents and I would go out to eat some Sundays and then shop at Whole Foods (since my hometown is Whole Foods-less) We’d get two packs of Ginger O’s. I’d take my package back to my dorm room – and it was like having a piece of home (not trying to sound sappy!)
Anywho – I haven’t had the store-bought variety in a long time and I had a craving for them – so I whipped my own up! I think you’ll love this spicy ginger cookie paired with vanilla frosting.
Also, I had the pleasure of sending these to three fellow food bloggers as part of the First Annual Food Blogger Love Cookie Exchange. Participation involved donating to CLIMATES-Rescue and The Bunny Hutch Boutique and/or No Kid Hungry. In return, I received three scrumptious cookies too!!
