New Food: Simple Soft and Chewy Ginger Cookies from One Perfect Bite

January 23rd, 2014

If you subscribe to my Pinterest page, my @douglaswelch Twitter account or my Google+ feed, you know that I am always finding recipes I want to try. This series, New Food, will highlight some of those finds as we make them for the first time in our own kitchen. Then, I’ll report back to you on the results — for better or worse! — Douglas

My version of Simple Soft and Chewy Ginger Cookies from One Perfect Bite

I am alway looking for new cookie recipes for my annual cookie party, but I am also trying to do a bit more baking throughout the year. These cookies looked so tasty, and the recipe so simple, it seemed and east and excellent cookie to try “just for the fun of it.” We were not disappointed with these cookies either. They are excellently spicy, crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside and well-balanced between sweet and spicy. The recipe worked perfectly, with the cookies coming out exactly as portrayed in the original blog post from One Perfect Bite. As someone who tries a lot of recipes, this is very welcome, as it isn’t always the case with many recipes.

Here are some process pictures from my baking and a slide show with all of my photos from this baking session.
