|Fresh Ginger Coconut Oat (Ginger ANZAC) Cookies|
I bought a ton of fresh ginger couple of days ago. Well not quite a ton but a lot anyway. It was ridiculously cheap, and now I have to find ways to use it.
Fresh ginger cake and ginger cookies immediately came to mind, the cookies won. The last ginger cookies I ate were the incredibly delicious teeth-breaker gingernut cookies. I want to keep my teeth intact so making these was out of question. Cookies which were crispy and chewy, but also buttery and syrupy is what I was after. As always my trusted ANZAC Cookie recipe came to the rescue. Add fresh ginger, make few adjustments and the recipe is ready to rock and roll. It took me a few attempts before I managed to get the recipe just right. The recipe is available here.
