Healthier Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Sharing is caring!

These are just what they say: big, soft, gingerbread cookies that stay soft. This healthier version of the original recipe uses butter instead of margarine, less sugar, and some white whole wheat flour.

Ingredients:

  • ½ vanilla bean
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons superfine sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

Split vanilla bean lengthwise with the tip of a sharp knife. Holding the pod open, scrape seeds from each half using the flat side of the knife. Transfer seeds to a large bowl; discard pod.

Pour cream over vanilla seeds; add sugar and vanilla extract. Whip cream with an electric mixer until soft peaks form, 3 to 5 minutes; cover with plastic wrap and chill until ready to serve.
