Just a short post today while I’m snowed in (should be sledding soon!).  The other day I made Sparkling Ginger Chocolate Cookies from this recipe.  Boy are they good.

If you are a ginger person, this recipe is for you.  I’ve never been one for super chocolatey cookies, but the blend of flavors here is really awesome.  It’s a pretty simple recipe relying mostly on quality of ingredients and the interest of the flavor combination.  Next time I might use just a little less chocolate.  In some of the cookies which ended up with bulkier chocolate bits, the ginger flavor gets overwhelmed to the point where you mostly taste chocolate.  But other than that it’s totally perfect.  So if you’re looking for a non traditional Christmas cookie to make, I vote for these!
