Classic Chewy Ginger Cookies

December 5, 2016

If you are anything like me, the holiday season is strictly for baking.  And by baking, I mean only preparing cookies.  Even though I am in a baking frenzy, I still like to keep things simple.  I may take one or two more elaborate recipes as the season moves forward but mostly stick with what I know and love.  Ginger cookies fall under the love category.  They are spicy, sweet and packed with flavor.  I can mix up a batch of these babies without breaking a sweat.  The trick is using top notch spices like freshly ground ginger so that the flavor is on point.  From time to time, I might sneak in some crystallized ginger for an added boost.
