I have tried all three of these recipes with gluten-free all purpose flour and so can recommend you use that if gluten is an issue for you or your cookie monsters... Otherwise, just follow these recipes as given... you will not be disappointed. I promise!
Here's the lineup...
I am not sure where the CRACK in the name of this cookie comes from... CRACK because you cannot stop eating them or CRACK because the batter cracks as it bakes... either way, they are a wonderful light molasses ginger cookie. if you only make one cookie this Holiday Season, this is the one!
This is a fun little short-bread like ball that goes so nicely with a cup of hot tea or even cocoa. It is surprising light, too. And honestly, they melt in your mouth...you won't break the calorie budget with these so if you are looking for something not too sweet, this one's for you!
These scrumptious crispy cookies have small chunks of candied ginger inside. MMMM. Just the thing for a true ginger lover and they are an easy icebox cookie.... that means you just roll up the dough, let it cool in the fridge, then slice and bake. Just right for the baker who doesn't like to mess around!
So, are you a Holiday Baker, too?
