ginger cookies with cider frosting

Ginger Cookies with Cider Frosting

Gingerbread cookies are quintessential part of the holiday season but great all year round! The apple tones help round out the sharp ginger flavor. The cookies are great on their own, but the frosting adds a different texture to it all.

  • 1 oz Angry Orchard Apple Ginger
  • 2 Cups flour
  • 2 Teaspoons ground ginger
  • ½ Teaspoon cinnamon
