Ok, I’m finally out of my food coma and ready to bring on the Holiday sweets. This truly is my favorite time of the year and nothing makes me happier than handing out sweets to friends and family. As a baking blogger it’s actually perfect, as I won’t struggle to give away my baked goods until after the New Year. I’m all stocked up on pretty boxes and bags which make extra treats look all festive too.
I love a spicy ginger cookie, but I’m not so much into the hard texture of a traditional ginger snap, so these were perfect for me. The edges are crisp and the insides are chewy and soft. I added candied ginger bits which add little burst of spicy ginger flavor with each bite. The dough comes together in no time and the bake up quickly. I chose to bake
a dozen of these and chill the rest of the dough in pre-scooped portions, making it easy as pie to bake up a few anytime company comes over.
On a side note, thank you all so much for the sweet comments on the wedding picture post! I put a lot of love and hard work into planning all the details of that day, so hearing all your kindness made my day! I will go back and give some info on vendors and stuff to answer your questions. :)
