This is my favorite Gingerbread Sugar Cookies recipe! These cookies are incredibly soft and chewy and they have just the right amount of spices and rich molasses flavor. They are very easy to make, the dough is easy to work with and they look beautiful nestled among all the traditional holiday cookies.
I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #ChristmasCookies recipes. All opinions are mine alone.
It’s day 2 of Christmas Cookies Week! Have you been following along on social media? Simply use #christmascookies and you will be able to find all of the great recipes we’ve shared.
I am sharing these incredibly soft and chewy Gingerbread Sugar Cookies with you today. We love these so much and anyone who eats one, can’t eat just one.
In fact, I hearby place a warning on these cookies… you probably won’t eat just one… or two… or three. Okay, you’ve been warned.
The recipe has a lot of ingredients, but it’s super easy to put together.
Tips for How to Make Gingerbread Sugar Cookies:
- There are two ways to chill the dough for these cookies. If you don’t want to make them right away, you can mix up the dough the night before or day before and allow it to chill in the refrigerator overnight. If you want to make them pretty quickly, you need to put them in the freezer for about a half hour to chill. Just check it after about 20 minutes to make sure it’s not frozen.
- Do not try to substitute margarine for butter. It changes so much about the taste and texture of this cookie.
- If you want to use all granulated sugar or all brown sugar, you can. I like both for texture and taste, but you can do what you want.
- If you don’t have light brown sugar, you may use dark brown sugar with no other changes.

Prize 2 – Adams Extract Prize Pack
Adams traces its beginnings back to Battle Creek, Michigan, when John A. Adams began making and selling his Green Plant Sarsaparilla extract, Adamur, in 1888. In 1905, he moved his family to Beeville, TX. At the time, most vanilla sold to pharmacies and was often labeled “Do not bake or freeze.” John A. Adams’ wife yearned for a flavoring that wouldn’t bake or freeze out. He announced that he could produce a better vanilla than the one his wife was currently using. Working with just $6.71 worth of materials on top of an old icebox, John A. Adams discovered the formula he wanted. To test this product, his wife whipped up a cake for the family to try. “John, this is the BEST flavoring I have ever used,” she announced. “Well, that’s old man Adams BEST,” he responded.
