Gingerbread Crinkle Cookies

Carrying on with the belated Christmas recipes, here is another!

I accidentally crushed too much allspice and didn’t want to bake more gingerbread cookies or cupcakes, so I decided to throw it into some Crinkle Cookies. Hence, Gingerbread Crinkle Cookies came about. Yes, they are sweet, yes they have sugar in them, but as a once off treat they are so good!

They are great for an all year round treat, not just Christmas.
