Gingerbread cookies with vanilla butter cream

This festive take on a classic soft gingerbread cookie is my reference to the popular cookie sold at Trader Joe’s every holiday season! Soft ginger is my favorite type of cookie. Of course I love these cute little ginger people, but they never look as delicious as I want them to be. A soft gingerbread cookie very similar to a snickerdoodle with a little more spice! And of course you have the rich and molasses flavor that is a must in ginger!

The buttercream blends nicely with the spicy gingerbread cookie. You can even use a delicious cream cheese topping as well, it would be such a great combination! These are a fun way to replace your regular Christmas cookies.
