Post by sara albers

ginger.spice.cookies. www.aliceandlois.comIt is finally Fall in the city. We had a glorious late summer and early fall but now the cool winds and fog (in the mornings) are upon us. This means time for tasty treats. I had been searching for the perfect ginger spice cookie recipe last year.  I tried a few and stumbled upon this yummy, soft and spicy ginger cookie recipe from the Food Network. I like to bake with more whole wheat flour than white flour and this recipe is a good mix. I highly recommend this recipe if you enjoy soft and chewy ginger cookies!
