My ultimate favorite type of cookie is any kind with crunchy coarse sugar on top.
Related: whenever I go to a coffee shop, I always go for the drink with coarse sugar sprinkled on top. Why is crunch in a drink appealing? I don’t know.
I just love it.
The best sugar to use for that kind of thing is Sugar In The Raw®. It is perfect for topping cookies, pies, muffins, anything that needs a little sweet crunch on top! Plus, it’s unrefined and unbleached which I appreciate.
It was especially delicious on these Soft Gingerbread Cookies! It added a bit more sweetness to the spicy cookies and that crunch that I love so much.
I really don’t like crunchy gingerbread cookies so every year I make soft ones and these are my favorite. They stay fat and really soft and I can’t get enough.
If you’re working on your holiday baking, look out for the 2 pound bulk box of Sugar In The Raw if you’re on the East Coast. West Coasters, key an eye out for the 24 ounce bag!
