Baking cookies isn't normally my thing, but around this time I get an urge to make gingerbread cookies. (I prefer "make" as opposed to "buy" as I love the gingerbread smell that permeates the house.) Last year I discovered a really good mix at Williams Sonoma that even my baker friends gave a thumbs up to (and blew away my grandma's recipe I was using). This year WS isn't carrying the mix. Can anyone point me towards a replacement? Recipe, cookbook, mail order mix source???
I think in general people think of a softer, chewier cookie as a gingerbread cookie, and a thin, crisp cookie as a gingersnap.
David Lebovitz has a good gingersnap recipe in his Room for Dessert cookbook. Alice Medrich has a good ginger cookie recipe in her cookie cookbook - she gives baking times based on the texture you want, including crisp on the outside and soft on the inside!
A few days ago on aol right when you log on where the days headlines are, was a recipe for "The Perfect Man"
it was a gingerbread recipe.
If anybody saw that and could tell me the site to go to to find it, or maybe got the recipe I would love to hear from you.
