So these cookies from 101 cookbooks are amazing. I won't say I like them more than my mother's molasses cookies, because I don't. I am however encouraged to add as much ginger as I damn well please to a ginger cookie from now on as I know they will only taste more delicious.
These cookies have a lot of ginger — 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh grated ginger and 4 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger. These cookies are fiery — they are also delicious, just sweet enough and full of whole wheat goodness.
I indulged in a little rainy-weather comfort and paired these cookie gems with a fresh cup of cinnamon spiced hot chocolate. My mouth was on fire with autumn flavours.
