Clearly, I have a thing for gingerbread desserts. I've made cakes, cookies, and even a gingerbread house cake! I am not sure if it's the spice element, deep molasses flavor, or the fact that anything ginger around the holidays reminds me of my grandmother's Ginger Crinkles. Regardless of why, I just keep gravitating toward ginger and gingerbread-inspired treats.
Remember this amazing 6-layer Gingerbread Latte Crunch Cake I made last year?
Well, I decided to turn that flavor pairing into a cookie. Yup, Gingerbread Latte Cookies. Along with molasses and some of my favorite spices, these sandwich cookies contain almond flour and a touch of cocoa for extra depth and a bit of softness. I paired the cookies with a rich, creamy espresso buttercream filling. They’re perfect for snacking on with one of those whipped cream-topped holiday coffee beverages or just a plain cup of joe.
I made this cookie recipe as part of the Cooking Channel's "31 Days of Cookies" series. A handful of us bloggers, along with their test kitchen, have created the most delicious variety of cookie recipes for you all to enjoy this holiday season.
