I love ginger spiced treats. Whether it’s rolled gingerbread cookies, Banana Gingerbread with Ginger Icing, Pumpkin Gingerbread Muffins or even my Triple Ginger Pound Cake, I always enjoy a piece of something gingery with a cup of tea this time of year. My Orange Gingerbread Crinkle Cookies are one of my favourite choices.
As you bite into my Orange Gingerbread Crinkle Cookies, the sugar crusted coating gives way to a tender cookie beneath. These soft, chewy cookies have a deep gingerbread flavour highlighted with a hint of orange that makes them absolutely irresistible.
I’ve been making these Orange Gingerbread Crinkle Cookies for over five years now and every Christmas I get asked to make them again and again. My husband takes them to work, my son shares them with friends and they make an appearance at every holiday party I give or attend. They are perfect with a glass of milk or a hot drink. Some folks even like them with a wee nip of whiskey!
Originally blogged as Orange Gingerbread Cookies, the name has somehow evolved over the years to Orange Gingerbread Crinkles. I’m not sure who started it but the name suits these sugar crusted crinkly cookies so well, I just went with it!
Easy to make and even easier to eat, these Orange Gingerbread Crinkle Cookies are sure to become an oft requested favourite at your house too. You can find the recipe for my Orange Gingerbread Crinkle Cookies here.
