Chewy Chewy Chewy

I used to hate ginger when I was younger, but now gingersnaps are one of my favorite cookies. I remember when my mom would buy chocolate covered ginger from See's Candy, and you know how they put all of the chocolate in one bag? Well, I would always get their toffee or chocolate covered caramel marshmallows, and I would reach in to the bag, pull out a candy, pop it in my mouth, and start chomping away. Imagine my surprise when I experienced an explosion of gingery spicyness. Yuck. It was awful, at least for a ten-year-old.

These cookies pack a punch of ginger, and too bad I didn't have any chocolate covered ginger because those probably would've made these cookies out of this world!



AH! So sorry everyone, turns out I forgot sugar....let me find my notes and I will get back to you guys on the recipe!

  2. love the simplicity here! going to try with hemp milk bc that's what i keep in stock but i'm betting almond milk would also be delish! saving this to my online cookbook (http://cookmarked.com)!

  3. I'm with you. I never liked ginger as a kid, but now it tastes great! I guess it's a sign of gettin' old. :)

  4. So looking forward to ending up with cookies just like the pic. Unfortunately I was disappointed. Did you forget an ingredient in the list. Maybe sugar?
