Our Favorite Holiday Cookie Recipe

'Tis the season for cookies, particularly our double ginger chocolate chunk cookies !

Every year during the holidays, we find ourselves making this recipe for everything, whether it's for gifts, parties, or yes - Santa. It's the perfect blend of sweet and spice, and pairs well with festive cocktails, peppermint hot chocolate, and your morning coffee (we won't tell).

This recipe also includes the Harvest Moon Baking Spice from Underground Spice Society, which you can buy in our holiday shop.
