Inspired by the flavours of the traditional gingersnap cookies, these ginger cookies are an absolute delight. The cracked tops give another dimension to the visual effect.


Unlike the traditional gingersnap cookies, mine were a bit softer and I did not make them as flat and thin as the original. The kitchen really smells good when these beauties are being baked. These were delightfully spiced cookies, and felt very light at the same time.


Summer has come and gone in the blink of an eye and so has autumn. As we enter the month of December, and the cold kicks in, it is also a time for to get ready for the end of the year festivities. On the cooking front, hot soups, stews etc begin to rule the roost. Warm spices added to various dishes seem to be more appealing during this time of the year. The aromas wafting though the kitchen while baking these cookies with the warm spices is something to be experienced. Do give these cookies a try; they do feel very festive and you will be left wanting for more!
