From VWaV. We wanted cookies and we looove ginger so hey, these sounded perfect!
And indeed they are. What a great holiday cookie these will make, but we'll take anything gingery and spicy any month of the year.
I did find that the dough was tntirely too sticky for handling and tested two methods of combating the sticky. First, and on the left, I used canola oil on my hands before rolling into little balls. On the right? I used flour.Not surprisingly, the canola cookies came out more dense, chewier, very decadent and rich-tasting. The floured hand version were more cookie like, puffed up more, had more structure and were less dense. I honestly don't know which I prefer more. the Cap'n chose the darker, denser ones, no big surprise there ;)
