If you have been on the hunt for a soft, warm ginger cookie recipe that is easy, delicious and 100% plant based, this is the cookie for you.
I use both fresh and dried ginger to capture the zingy-warmth of the ginger from all angles and just love adding an extra sprinkle of sugar over the top for that sparkly holiday feel.
