Holiday Ginger Cookies Recipes with Yacon Syrup

The holidays are here and I’m on a mission to warm myself up with something other than an itchy sweater. While a swig of Peppermint Hot Chocolate does the trick, I've been craving something from the oven lately. Something warm, comforting and classic for this time of year – Ginger Cookies! They pair perfectly with a hot mug of Apple Cider, which works out great because I may have gone overboard on that holiday favorite, too… I have two gallons left in the cabinet. Whoops.

There are dozens of recipes for Ginger Cookies there, but this year, I had a special interest in making cookies with Yacon Syrup. Yacon Syrup is an alternative sweetener similar to Molasses but with much less sugar. In doing a little more research, it's also show to help in weight management and support good digestion. Bonus points! Another cookie? Don't mind if I do!

A friend of mine dropped off a jar for me recently and I've been itching to give it a go! Or it could just be this crazy, itchy sweater.
