Thick soft and chewy Cookies with a good Ginger Bite filled with sweet, gooey Caramel!
Staying with my parents has been glorious. I kind of never want to leave. Mainly because there is an endless supply of wine. Kidding. But for real. It’s been so fun and really great to be back here for part of the holiday season. This past weekend we had our annual Pierogi party, and it was a blast. I had a few requests for the recipe after mentioning it Friday, so I’ve got it and I snapped some pics..Ill throw it together as soon as I can.
In the meantime, I’m about to spend this week planning a first birthday party for my youngest. I can’t even believe he turns one in two weeks..oh my what a quick 12 months it has been! Someone puh-lease slow down time!
SO before I head back to Missouri early next week, we’re having a liiiitle party with all our family and friends for him..so sad my hubs can’t be here, thank goodness for Skype!
Since Saturday was filled with our pierogi party, about 400-500 pierogis to be exact, I KNOW, I had a good excuse to make lots of sweets to pawn off on everyone! These Caramel Stuffed Soft Gingerbread Cookies were one of them..and they’re ahhhmazing. I made two batches because the first batch was gone the day I made them. oink.
These gingerbread cookies are thick, soft, and chewy, they’ve got an incredible bite from the ginger and molasses and the sweet gooey caramel balances them out perfectly! They’re incredibly easy to make and I know you’ll just love them! Add these to your holiday tray and watch people swoon!
Updated to add: Many people have come back saying the caramels hardened. Caramel will harden at room temp, these cookies are best served from the oven! But if you just pop them in the microwave for 10-15 seconds when you’re ready to eat another, it should soften up the caramels again!
