Ginger Spices Cookies

Saturday, November 12, 2016

Hey everyone! Hope you're having a good day x Today's post is a sweet and delicious recipe, perfect for fall and winter. We got inspired by a lot of recipes especially - hot ginger tea with lemon slices, but also the warming winter spices. They're usually used in entrees, drinks and mostly in making best desserts!

Ginger cookies with white chocolate and sprinkled pistachio or lemon zest, or both. Why not, these are the best seasons ahead of us to allow yourself eat some sweets. The melted chocolate is the base for sprinkles! They're perfect on their own or with hot tea / hot chocolate. They literally scream to you - CHRISTMAS! It's a perfect addition to a Christmas present that you made for someone yourself. You could make these with your kids on cold winter evenings. And if you're younger go ahead, invite your friends and all of you can have fun in the kitchen!

The recipe makes around 40 cookies, depending on how big you'll make the balls. To make sure that they're baking evenly and getting light brown we baked one pan at a time. You should be able to fit about 15 cookies in one baking pan.
