Vegan Soft Gingerbread Sandwich Cookies

Let’s talk cookies (…again).

Soft Gingerbread Sandwich Cookies that pair perfectly with Califia Farms Vanilla Almondmilk! #spon #vegan

Yesterday we shared these Snickerdoodle Nog Cookie Sticks paired with Califia Farms Holiday Nog.

Now we’re continuing the holiday spirit with cookie & Almondmilk pairing #2. 

Today we have…

Soft Gingerbread Sandwich Cookies paired with Califia Farms Vanilla Almondmilk.

Now, if you will indulge your inner child for a quick sec, these cookies taste just like Oatmeal Creme Pies.  Except these are holiday because GINGERBREAD!!  Have you ventured into the gingerbread world yet? I’ve got muffins and terrariums and lattes and smoothies on my gingerbread must-make list. 

But seriously, those terrariums!! I’ve been freaking out over them for 2 whole days.  And I think that smoothie is in my very near future (i.e. tomorrow, well actually today because I’m typing this post yesterday so that makes tomorrow today.  You know what I’m saying? It’s like when you’re watching The Today Show and they’re like, “tomorrow on Today.”  And you’re like…”what?…oh.  I get it.”) 

Tell me you get me.

If you’ve ever wondered what a day in the life of me looks like, I spend most of my time debating which pictures I should share with you guys. I mean, I spend an obscene amount of time clicking back and forth between 2 pictures trying to decide which one is better.  My life is like a daily eye doctor’s appointment: Which is clearer? 1 or 2? 1 or 3? 

And then sometimes I just can’t decide which photo to choose so I pick both, which is what I did below.

Well, that’s not actually what a day looks like because most posts are built in the late hours of the night.   I’ve always found that I’m most creative at night.  Which is weird because I’m a total morning person…I LOVE mornings.  I read this article (or I read one paragraph from an article) about how people with creative jobs (I’m assuming taking pictures of food falls into the ‘creative job’ category)…do them best at their off hours.  Like since I’m a morning person I’m most creative at night because my mind isn’t as sharp and doesn’t make as many logical connections, which allows for creativity.  So clearly this means I should take lengthy naps in the middle of the day.  That way I can be a morning person and a night person.

I call me getting distracted and going off on a tangent ‘creativity’…when you might have a different word for it.  You may just call it blabbering on and on.

So these gingerbread cookies aren’t like gingersnaps.  Because I wouldn’t be me if I was serving you crunchy cookies (but we won’t get into that discussion again). 

These taste like gingersnaps, but the texture is soft.  And soft cookies are key to cookie sandwiches.  If your sandwich cookie cookies are hard, you’ll bite into them and frosting will go all directions except into your mouth.  Which is quite a bummer. 

So make these soft ginger cookies and chase them down with a refreshing glass of Califia’s Vanilla Almondmilk.  It’ll be so holiday you can’t even deal.

P.S. If you want to make your oatmeal with Califia Farms Vanilla Almondmilk and then top the whole thing with a gingerbread cookie sandwich…I support you whole heartily. And I assure you it’s delicious because I had it for breakfast a couple weeks ago.  I mean, I had to try it for you first.

  1. Yup. Immaeatthat. Like a whoopie pie/double doozy in the best way possible.

    • OH MY GOSH double doozy!! I totally forgot what those were for a second! I absolutely used to love those things! So many memories 8th grade trips to the mall for shopping + Great American cookies are filling my head right now!!

  2. Oh my gosh these look like what my dreams are made of. Coincidentally, I purchased Califia Farms Vanilla Almond Milk yesterday after eyeing it for weeks! I finally pulled the trigger because it was on sale and absolutely LOVE the rich flavor and texture, it and the chic bottle. I will definitely make these cookies – they look scrumptious and fit into my diary-sensitive diet perfectly. And I trust they are scrumptious because you are the master of cookies! I will let you know how they turn out. Thanks for the recipe !

    • I’ve been putting it in my tea in the mornings and it really is so much creamier than other almond milks. I’ve also been eying the hazelnut creamer…I think that would do wonders to my tea!!

  3. These look and sound like the happiness of the holiday season. Soft cookies alllll the way!

  4. Soft cookies rule, obviously… and you’re a cookie master, cant wait to make these… I need to buy molasses, asap!

  5. These sound amazing! I wish I could lick that frosting right off of my computer screen right now ;)

  6. If those aren’t the most perfectly round and satisfyingly crinkle-y little cookies, I don’t know what are!

  7. Do you think I can make the frosting ahead of time and store in the fridge for a few days?

  8. Mmmm… soft ginger cookies are my fave holiday treat… I love that you stuffed them with frosting!! So delish!!

  9. These sandwich cookies look awesome! I am loving the idea of a vegan cream cheese especially – never made anything like it before so it’s definitely something I need to try.
