Vegan Gingersnap Cookies

Ginger cookies are my favorite treat to make around the holidays! With their spicy flavors and chewy consistency, they make a perfect dessert to enjoy while you decorate the house or wrap gifts. The applesauce stands in for eggs and adds some moisture, while the dark molasses adds a nice richness of flavor that you won’t find in very many cookie recipes. Happy Holidays!
