It was hot again today. And it's supposed to be even hotter tomorrow. Despite that, I decided to make a dinner that would keep me using the rice cooker, stove, and oven for about 2 hours straight. Because I am the smart one in the family (the rest of them can barely dress themselves).
I made saffron rice (Chrissy's delicious recipe), lentils with whatever the hell I wanted to throw in, pita bread, and Holly's ginger molasses cookies. The rice and lentils turned out fine, and...wait why am I even talking about anything besides the cookies?
See that sparkling? That's magical happiness.
One roommate actually said they're the best ginger cookies he's ever tasted. I heartily concur; these are what all cookies should aspire to be. Thank you, Holly! Ginger cookies are my favorite, but this is the first time I've actually made them.
I doubled the recipe - after growing up with 5 siblings I think I might actually be incapable of NOT doubling a cookie recipe. Or any recipe at all (yeah, I ate a LOT of leftovers in college). I also added a little more ginger and cinnamon because, really, can you ever have too much ginger and cinnamon?
Also, I am convinced these cookies would be phenomenal with s'mores. Obviously I must test that hypothesis - it's scientifically irresponsible not to.
That's my cookie smile.
