If you’re missing the holidays, these soft & chewy Gingersnap Cookies will take you right back to them! A soft and chewy gingersnap cookie is one of my favorite cookies on the planet. I know gingersnap cookies are traditionally hard and crunchy, but I promise once you taste these you’ll never want to have them any other way.

I love how you can tell how soft and chewy these will taste just by looking at the Chocolate Peanut Butter Butterfinger Cookies. This recipe is a super easy one to make, so if you’re a fan of Butterfinger, this could be the first recipe to try from the list. These could easily become a family favorite in your home, just like it has for mine!

Soft & Chewy Cookie Recipe #3: Everything but the Kitchen Sink Cookies

The secret ingredient to these Everything but the Kitchen Sink Cookies is the potato chip and pretzel crack filling. Most recipes for this type of cookie just throw in the pretzels and potato chips, but I make an actual crack filling that you bake before adding it to the cookie dough. This method will help you get that crunchy contrast with the soft and chewy cookie.

Soft & Chewy Cookie Recipe #4: White Chocolate Raspberry Biscoff Cookies

Raspberries have been on my mind, so I added this White Chocolate Raspberry Biscoff Cookie recipe to the list! (I think it must be from all the raspberry Valentine cake recipes I just added.) There’s a special tip on how to carefully add in the Biscoff spread at the end. You can check that out on the original post before baking!

Soft & Chewy Cookie Recipe #5: Churro Cookies

I actually used a box of cookie mix for this Churro Cookie recipe. I know, but it’s not what you’re thinking! For this recipe, I teamed up with Food Stirs. They create mixes using high-quality ingredients (i.e. they use real ingredients that are free of artificial preservatives, dyes, and flavors). As much as I love baking from scratch, I also love the convenience of baking from a box mix, especially if you’re baking with kids. 

P.S. The cinnamon chip ganache these cookies are dipped in will change your world!

I long ago ditched box mixes in pursuit of melt-in-your-mouth, to-die-for flavor combinations, fillings and textures. I believe cake must be decadent, life-changing and worthy of celebration! And I believe anyone should be able to bake that kind of cake – and I’m here to teach you just that!
