SMS Ginger Snaps
Gloria from The Ginger Snap Girl choose what else - ginger snaps for this week's SMS.
I like ginger snaps but wasn't sure how they would go over in our house so I opted to halve the recipe. I rarely mess around with the measurements when baking but many of the bloggers that participate in SMS frequently halve (or even quarter) the recipes so I decided to try it this week and still ended up with more than two dozen cookies. The flavor of these ginger snaps is subtle but fantastic! I recently picked up some crystallized ginger that I've been itching to try so I diced up some of that and threw it in the batter to intensify the ginger flavor. I also cooked the cookies less than the recipe recommended and ended up with the perfect consistency, soft in the center with slightly crisp edges.
These cookies were really easy to make, delicious, and would be great in a lot of different ways (as a pie/cheesecake crust, sandwiching ice cream, crumbled over a fruit crisp...). Visit Gloria's site, here, for the recipe and give them a try!
