Gingery Fudgy Crinkle Cookies


This is another cookie creation that was inspired by watching the fifteen minute video by cookie artiste Susan Spungen last week. Thankfully I found the article: 12 Stunning Cookies that will Impress Everyone You Know that featured Spungen's recipes and more gorgeous photos of her creations.

Ingredients

  • ⅓ C flour
  • ⅓ C cocoa powder (I used a mixture of Dutch-process and Black Onyx Cocoa Powder)
  • ¾ t baking powder
  • ½ t salt
  • 1 C chocolate (I used bittersweet)
  • ¼ C butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ C organic dark brown sugar
  • ¼ C organic granulated sugar
  • 1" knob fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 t ground ginger
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • ¾ C chipped chocolate (I used semisweet)
  • candied ginger pieces, thinly sliced


Procedure

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.

Combine 1 C bittersweet chocolate and butter in a small bowl that fits on top of a saucepan with 1" of water in the saucepan below. Bring water to a boil, then reduce to a simmer, then set the bowl on top. Stir occasionally until completely melted. Remove bowl from saucepan to cool slightly.

Combine eggs and sugars in a medium mixing bowl and beat until lightened and fluffy, approximately 5 minutes. Add the fresh ginger, ground ginger, and vanilla extract. Beat to combine.

Pour in the melted chocolate mixture and beat until well-combined. Add the flour mixture and beat until just moistened. Fold in the chipped chocolate. Refrigerate the batter for 5 to 10 minutes to let it firm up. Then use a small cookie scoop to scoop dough onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.


Press a candied ginger slice into the top of each cookie. Bake until surface is crinkled and edges are firm, approximately 8 to 10 minutes.

Let cookies cool for a few minutes on the baking sheets, and transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

I don't usually eat everything that I bake as I don't have much of a sweet tooth. This cookie, however, found its way onto my plate at least twice this weekend. It's rich and chocolatey. I loved it!

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
