Soft Egg Free Gingerbread Cookies

Egg Free Gingerbread Cookies

These delicious Egg Free Gingerbread Cookies (or Gingersnap Cookies!) are soft, chewy, and perfectly spiced, but not overly spicy. The ginger and cinnamon spiced dough comes together easily with minimal ingredients, and are naturally egg free, with no special egg substitutes. Press the dough in sugar or sprinkles, and you’re ready to bake!Author: Safely DelishIngredients

Recipe Notes

For Cut Out Gingerbread Cookies, it’s easiest to roll out, then fully chill the dough (which doesn’t take long once it’s rolled) before cutting out your shapes. This helps the cookies stay firm and hold their shape as you place them on the pan.
