I know of too many cookie recipes but the gingerbread man seems to be one of the biggest collections I have. Aside the spicy taste of ginger, I just like the aroma. I had this special recipe that flavored the cookie with ground cinnamon and molasses. Each time a holiday comes around, I just decide to look for this old recipe and make as many cookies I can from it.
These cookies look like chocolate chips but with one minor difference. They are round and have some whish powdery topping. In some way, they look like fudges too (by texture and taste). It is made from bittersweet chocolate so it may not be very sweet to taste but all the same, you have the topping sugar acting as a balance. A small amount of dough can give you about 36 cookies. If you are in a hurry, you may not find this cookie ideal as it need to be refrigerated overnight so you get the shape and taste right.
This season, we bring you these Christmas cookies recipes with pictures. All the three images represent our first choice for the holiday bake and will bring you more.
