Me Want Cookie!

Yup, that's me.

Maybe it's all this healthful eating, but I'm in the mood for cookies. I was craving Chewy Ginger Snaps over the holidays, but then I hit a wall and experienced cookie overload. It's been at least a couple of weeks without a cookie, so it's time.

I posted this recipe on Cooking Light a while back. My friend shared this with me - she in turn got it from The Ginger People. The Ginger People sell crystallized ginger, but I bought mine from King Arthur Flour.

I'm not a huge ginger snap fan, but I love these. They have a great, chewy texture and I love the bite from the crystallized ginger. Yum!

Our fridge is overloaded with this and that - a bit of Easy Layered Beans and Rice, a bit of A Very Veggie Soup, some leftover pizza, a cheeseburger and some green beans, so we'll be doing the leftover routine tonight. Maybe that will leave me with some cooking time for cookies AND muffins - we'll see.


  1. Yeah, the leftover routine. We went there Thursday.
    I have not forgot about your healthy grab-n-go breakfast challenge. I plan to make some muffins tomorrow. I'll let you know.

  2. Yes, the month is halfway over and I've only tried two recipes. Once I get some buttermilk, I will try a couple more. Can't wait to see your contribution. :)

  3. Love gingersnaps! BTW, you've been tagged by me for a meme. :)

  4. Thanks for the tag Michele - I'll check it out. :)
