This week's treat is the return of a family favorite--my favorite cookies, in fact. But, first, we enjoyed a scrumptious and flavorful dinner of Norwegian meatballs, spinach cooked in sauteed garlic and fluffy, whipped potatoes.
But, on to the cookies...
Of all the many, many cookies which I adore, if I had to rescue just one kind from a burning building (just go with it), it would be these enormous ginger cookies. Soft and chewy with a delightful tang of ginger, these cookies sparkle with a dusting of demerara sugar. Chewy and thick, these sturdy (not crumbly or crumby like a lot of cookies) cookies travel well and are perfect to take on road trips. After one of these, you can easily drive another one hundred miles without a hint of complaint. Everything about them is baked perfection. Served up with a fresh fruit salad of kiwi, pineapple, bananas and berries, this makes for a light, but filling dessert.
To be sure, I'd drive a hundred miles just to get one.
