I have a soft gingersnap cookie recipe that I’ve been making at the holidays for over 20 years. It’s pretty much a family tradition. I don’t think I’ll ever stop making them for Christmas. But I think these Gingersnap Sandwich Cookies may have just earned a spot on the beloved holiday cookie platter too!
These soft little gingersnap gems are filled with a coconut and orange creme that pretty much makes them irresistible. Coconut and orange are a match made in heaven–especially paired with ginger–and the filling is definitely the star of these cookies. You must try very, very hard not to sample too much, because the recipe makes just enough. Trust me, I over-sampled and learned the hard way! It is soooo good though…..it was totally worth it!
And who doesn’t love a sandwich cookie? Because you get to cookies for the price of one! You can make these sandwich cookies any size you’d like, but because you are technically getting two cookies here, I prefer to make them a little bit smaller.
If I were going to do anything differently, I would double the batch. My family loved these little cookies, and they didn’t last long at our house. So if you want to have enough to share with friends and neighbors, you make want to consider making extra.
I often make holiday cookies ahead of time and freeze them. I haven’t tried that with this recipe. But I am certain you could at freeze the cookies and filling separately, and then put everything together when you were ready to enjoy and share these tasty filled treats. Happy baking!
Be sure to save this fun filled holiday cookie recipe to your favorite Pinterest board for later.
