Chewy Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies

Chewy Chocolate Gingerbread CookiesThis is from Martha Stewart’s Cookies and the recipe is available on her website.  I was a little disappointed in these cookies. This is the picture on the cover of the book and I have been wanting to make them since I bought the book.  They were chewy, but I wanted them to be thicker, these were very thin and spread out.  I think they spread out more than they should have.  I was also perplexed by adding the boiling water to the baking soda.  I am really not sure what purpose this served.   My cookies also didn’t crack like the picture.  They did have a very nice spice and ginger flavor.   I’ll have to try this again with a few tweaks.

  1. I was perplexed about the boiling water and baking soda, too, especially because it’s not much water to begin with. Maybe it’s to ensure the baking soda gets dissolved completely? Who knows! 😉

    Fortunately, the cookie is worth it.
