Cinnamon Ginger Chocolate Chip Cookies

As I head out for the holidays, I thought I’d leave you with one more delicious cookie recipe to add to your holiday baking.  Their name is a mouthful, but I promise that the flavors go perfectly together.

I found these cinnamon ginger chocolate chip cookies on http://www.gfzing.com/ and I was immediately intrigued by the use of cinnamon and ginger in this recipe.  The recipe reminded me of snickerdoodles, but even better because they have chocolate chips!  I made some changes, but used the original recipe as my guide.  These cookies have been very popular among all of my gluten-eating friends and I’m making a big batch for the holidays.  David said this was a really good flour combination too so I might try it with some other cookie recipes to see how it works in my other baking endeavors.

I love the texture of these cookies because they’ve been rolled in sugar.  Yum!  I also tried refrigerating some of the dough for a couple of days and then using it to make a batch of cookies and it worked just fine.  The cookies came out a little smaller after their three days in the fridge, but the taste was still delicious!

Enjoy!  These are a fun twist to your normal chocolate chip cookes.  For some reason, cinnamon reminds me of the holidays so I find that this recipe has a festive touch without being overly sprinkled or topped with gobs of icing.  Have a wonderful and healthy holiday.
