These are my FAVORITE gingersnap-esque cookies. I won’t call them gingersnaps ’cause they don’t snap. If you bake them right, they’re nice and soft and chewy and amazing. And they were the perfect “sweet appetizer” for Thanksgiving.
I don’t think I’ve ever baked cookies that provoked so many immediate, audible reactions (from “oh my God” to “damn, Cate” to even more explicit interjections). These double chocolate buttermilk cookies are that good. And they were sort of accidental.
Ever since my epic search for root beer ingredients – which was ultimately disappointing – I’ve been determined to find a way to incorporate root beer flavoring into a dessert.
These, my friends, are the culmination of a epic quest for ingredients – a quest that spanned more than seven grocery establishments and ten days of increasing irritation (until I ultimately caved and resorted to Amazon.com, as is so often the way).
These festive little lovelies have been circulating my facebook of late, and I naturally couldn’t resist the temptation to give the recipe a try. I didn’t use to be that into sprinkles (on the principle that they don’t taste that great), but they’re so damn joyful! I had to give these a shot.
Baking in someone else’s kitchen is always an adventure. You never know what they’ll have on hand, so it’s best to keep things simple. These marvelous Nutella cookies are just 5 ingredients.
