Chewy Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies

There is a reason this cookie is featured on the cover of the Martha Stewart’s Cookies recipe book. Don’t let the “gingerbread” in the title fool you: This is not your grandmother’s classic Christmas gingerbread house cookie that is a little bit cardboard-like. Dang, these are to die for! So chewy, spicy, and crunchy-sweet, they are a wonderful dessert to any meal. The chocolate can be a gooey rich treat but can also be left out if you’re a pure ginger cookie enthusiast. You don’t need to splurge on the (beautiful!!!!) book itself to get the recipe – you can find the recipe here.

    SO TRUE. I immediately flipped to this recipe after seeing it on the cover and set about veganizing it. I’ve tried it a couple different ways and they are both good. Yrs look like they came out perfectly.

    My name is Gina and I can attest to the truly amazingness of these particular cookies. Tessa–you have the magic touch. Teach me your ways.

    Personally I think this is one of the best cookies that I have ever eaten! A bit of a pain to make, but well worth it! I think it was worth the cost of the cookbook (which I bought at a discount at least). However, I’m glad to see the recipe posted as well and if I’d known about this recipe I could have saved some money. Must try something else from that book!
