Ginger Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Ginger Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Erik gave in to the impulse buy shelf at Trader Joes last week. Crispy Crunchy Ginger Chunk Cookies. We ate the whole bag in one day. And we never do that. We are the indulge in one cookie in the evening and it’s all we need kind of people. Not with these. I made him promise never to get them again.

Then what did I do a few days later? Try to replicate them. Yes, shame on me.

These cookies aren’t the same as the Trader Joes one (they’re not gluten free like the TJs ones) and I added chocolate chunks. However, what I was going for was a crispy, crunchy cookie – which has never been my goal – until now – when baking cookies. I have also never added candied ginger to cookies before, and now I asking myself why did it take this long? But my goodness these cookies are great.

After eating way too many, we had to pack them up and put them in the freezer – this somehow limits our intake of cookies. But I have to say they are great straight out of the freezer too.

I used this recipe except instead of 2 cups of chocolate chunks I added 1 cup finely chopped candied ginger and 1 cup chocolate chips.

So good.
