Ginger crackle cookies

By | December 6, 2011

I feel I should apologize.

These photos just do not do these cookies justice.

The tops crackle beautifully. The outer shell is just hard enough to give you something to bite into, and the inside is moist and soft and perfect. They’re deliciously fragrant. They’ve got all those great fall spices, and you know you love that they’re rolled in sugar.

And all I could manage were a few hurried photos taken on Friday afternoon.

Although I’m constantly looking for new recipes, planning new recipes, and dreaming about new recipes, I’ve made these ginger crackle cookies more often than I know.

Aside from being just really, really good (and a hit with both adults and kids), they’re easy. No fuss. And for me, no-fuss baking means “easy to make pareve.” Not that I make pareve food for us, of course. No need in a vegetarian kitchen. It’s for the other people, you know, the Shabbos hosts.

What’s that? You want to have us over this week? Sorry, we’re booked.

Made these cookies today as I wanted something sweet with a kick. They hit the spot perfectly and the kids loved them.
