Here is my Eye Candy Friday post for this week:
I just finished baking some delicious chewy spicy ginger cookies and thought I would share. They are crispy on the outside, but chewy in the inside. The recipe is called Spiced-Up Ginger Cookies. I made one modification to the recipe. I used King Arthur 100% white whole wheat flour for the all-purpose. This is a new, but similar recipe to the ginger snaps I usually make. I thought I would try this new recipe because it calls for candied ginger. I used crystalized ginger. Ginger is a natural anti-inflamatory, so I thought what would be a better way to get some ginger in our diet. I know I have my aches and pains. There is usually always someone complaining in my household... this week especially my youngest son's neck was hurting because of a too heavy backpack. What would be a better way to end this school week than to have homemade ginger cookies waiting for them when they come home from school. I know he and the rest of my boys will love these cookies. I didn't roll them in sugar. I usally only do that at Christmas time to make the cookies special. I think this recipe will be a keeper!
I also finished my second "swish with a twist" done in white peaches and cream. After doing it a second time the pattern really gets easier. This is a very enjoyable pattern and I know I have many more in my future!
