Chocolate Ginger Cookies

We recently stayed in Roswell, Ga with some dear friends. Gail and John host Gail's Great Escapes in Tuscany every year.
I'll spill more on that after the holidays...
We all shared a pinch of a cookie from the Fickle Pickle. They have a gingerbread cookie that had me dying for more. Since we are a long way from Roswell, I got out my apron and started adding a pinch of dis and a pinch of dat.

It may not be the real thing~ but I'll bet my Georgia lotto ticket you will love these







Double Chocolate Ginger Cookies

1 box gingerbread mix
1 Tbs cocoa powder
2 Tbs butter
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup diced ginger
1 cup chopped dark chocolate
1 Tbs flour

Pre-heat oven to 375°

Combine mix with melted butter and water. Add cocoa powder and stir until well combined. Add diced ginger. Combine flour and chocolate chunks and stir until blended. Using a small ice cream scoop place rounded scoops of cookie dough about 2 inches apart. Bake for 8-9 minutes. Cool on a rack.

Y'all enjoy!

Hello from Germany! The cookies look absolutely fabulous! The "Gimme Some Sugar" Aprons from Whistlestop were a big hit in 2 separate baskets I made for auctions. Hope y'all are doing well! -Vonda

A mix? My goodness, a mix? I am in shock! LOL

Lydia said...

I think it's fun to start with the gingerbread mix -- so convenient and, with a bit of a flavor boost from nice strong fresh or dried ginger, it can be wonderful.

Chopped dark chocolate. Say no more.
