Ginger Crinkle Cookies Recipe

Something about the ginger, cinnamon and clove combination just warms the body and soul – making these the coziest of cookies. We love to serve these up on a winter’s day or whenever there’s a good chill in the air.

Equally heart-warming are the happy childhood memories that come to mind when we grab our Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book off the shelf to make this recipe. Just the look of the classic red gingham cover conjures the excitement of browsing all the recipes as kids before deciding what to make.

This recipe comes from the Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book, 1981 version.

We hope you have fun making this recipe too. Perfect for a tea break or holiday dessert plate, you’ll warm up the room when you serve these next.
