G is for... Ginger and Chocolate Cookies

Tuesday, January 22

Made these cookies on sunday evening, sadly no snow here yet however I still have my hopes for an end to this miserable rain but cookies always cheer you up right? Sadly also had my first knock back from uni! It was the one I really wanted to go to as well and I'm not sure what to do now! 

1/2 cup       Butter, softened
1/2 cup soft brown sugar
1 small      Free Range Egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cups plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch salt
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
100g bar dark chocolate 
1/4 cup chopped crystallized ginger

  1. Combine butter and brown sugar in large bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. 
  2. Add egg and vanilla; continue beating, scraping bowl occasionally, until well mixed. 
  3. Add flour, baking soda, salt and ground ginger; beat at low speed until well mixed. 
  4. Chop the chocolate and ginger with a shark knife and stir into the picture. If it feels to hard you could add a splash of milk but be careful you don't ever do it!
  5. Collect balls of dough about the size of a serving spoon and flatten into a disk, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. In a preheated oven at 180. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to cooling rack. Cool 5 minutes.
