Cookie of the Week: Chocolate gingerbread cookies
Chewy treats with sweet morsels
Our second recipe is from Jennifer Huberdeau, editor of UpCountry Magazine. These chocolate gingerbread cookies are simple to make, but require the baker to make sure they only cool on the pan for no more than 5 minutes. Failing to transfer them to a cooling rack will result in a slightly harder cookie. Jennifer made two batches of these slightly chewy morsel-filled treats, after trying (and failing) to make her own Swedish pearl sugar from crushed bits of European sugar cubes. Jennifer also said the flavor of the first batch was a bit overwhelming. With the second batch, she reduced the amount of gingerbread seasoning and topped the cookies with silver sanding sugar. Both changes were well received by her family, who made sure the cookies didn't go to waste.
