Gingerbread Drop Cookies



Hi! My name is Sue, of Munchkin Munchies, and I am so happy to be here with Ashley today on her fabulous blog!  I’m sharing this cookie recipe today as part of a Virtual Christmas Cookie Exchange, organized by Liz of Hoosier Homemade and Becca of Crumbs and Chaos.  

I’m sharing a recipe I’ve never tried before and I really think you’ll like it; Gingerbread Drop Cookies with Gingerbread M&M’s.
Not long ago, I was browsing facebook and saw that someone had posted a photo of some gingerbread M&M’s that they had found at Walmart.  I was kind of excited because I love M&M’s and I love gingerbread, so I ran over to Walmart that night and lo, and behold, there they were, right on the shelf with all the other seasonal goodies:)
I thought the candies would be great in a simple drop cookie.  I’ve made ginger cookies before (my husband’s favorite), but I wanted to look for more of a gingerbread cookie.  I searched the internet and found the perfect cookie from Domestic Bliss. It looked and sounded just right. It did not disappoint! These cookies are chewy and sweet, and with all the spices added, they are a Christmas classic:)  The m&m’s lend the perfect taste treat!

  5. Love love love these!

  6. These cookies look heavenly! I could eat 2 or 7 all by myself :) Pinned!

  7. You might want to add in the directions when to put the baking soda in. I print the recipe and followed the directions. I didn’t double check the ingredients and I accidentally left out the baking soda. My cookies still came out ok, just not great. I also thought there is a lot of flour. I might try just 3 Cups when I remake these this weekend.
    Thanks for the recipe!

  8. These look so good! I haven’t heard of the Gingerbread M&M’s!
    Thanks for joining the Cookie Exchange!
