ginger cookies

by Isobel

Sometimes it is just a cookie baking kind of day. I generally find that The Joy of Cooking has the best classic recipes, and therefore has the best recipes to mess with when you don’t actually feel like making a classic recipe (or don’t have chocolate chips). I just took the chocolate chip drop cookie recipe and replaced the butter with coconut oil, and the chocolate chips with chopped crystallized ginger. Ok, I also added some coconut butter (which was kind of cold so it crumbled in) and shredded coconut. If you don’t like ginger or coconut, you might want to stick to chocolate chips, but I won’t judge you.
