Day 6 of the Baker’s Dozen Cookie Challenge and it is gluten-Free Ginger Cookies. It was going to be Mexican Wedding Cookie day but they just did not turn out right. It was sad to see them lying in the trash but that is the life of a baker or a cook, sometimes things do not come together as planned. I’ll have to get back to them another time.
I have made these ginger cookies for years but in the regular flour form. Today, it was gluten-free flour once again since I am still working my way through the bag of it. I really did not notice much of a texture difference on these cookies from the ones with regular flour. Just lots of warming ginger.
This is one of the few recipes I actually buy margarine for. Using butter makes them hard and crispy, they lose the wonderful softness that makes them so perfect to eat with a glass of milk or a cup of tea. Hubby loves them with his coffee. In fact these are one of his favorite cookies.
While I am getting a little tired of eating cookies, this recipe reminds me again of my love for cookies and for some reason the Cookie Monster song just came to mind: “C is for cookie, that’s good enough for me…” And I think I will leave you on that note and for those of you who do not know the Cookie song here is the link 🙂
