(Chef Karen is going it alone this week)
Ginger cookies have never been a favourite of mine. Not sure if they’re too strong or what but I’m not a big fan…. until I found this recipe. My husband likes them so I thought I’d be nice and make some for him; turns out, I like them now, too. I used Ina Garten’s Ultimate Cookie Recipe from the Food Network website. They have a nice ginger-y taste to them and they’re not too strong. When I made them I wasn’t thrilled with the dough. I found it to be VERY crumbly; to the point that I thought I was going to throw it out. But, I continued on and made it work. I think I added the flour too quickly so keep that in mind. It’s certainly not too late to bake for the Christmas holidays so get going and whip up a batch of these….. I’m pretty sure you’ll be a fan, too.
Chef Jonathan and I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Thank-you for supporting our blog by reading our posts. We hope to keep going in 2014 with fun and interesting recipes to pass onto you!
