Gingersnaps with the recipe from Milk & Cookies Bakery

Gingersnaps From Milk & Cookies Bakery – a cookie maven’s best cookie

This week we’re thrilled to offer a Gingersnaps recipe from Chef Tina Casaceli of NY’s Milk & Cookies Bakery. If you haven’t experienced Milk & Cookies, put this shop on your Manhattan bucket list. Casaceli’s creations are not only among the best baked goods in the city, in our opinion, they’re some of the best in the country.

Robust ginger flavor

The gingersnaps recipe below makes a classic gingersnap, with slightly crisp edges and a moist interior, thanks to brown sugar. The main difference that sets these cookies apart from any ordinary gingersnap is the heavy dose of ginger–5 tablespoons, in fact. It spikes the cookies with a pleasing heat and robust ginger flavor. And, of course, ginger is one of our favorite aphrodisiacs.

Cooking for a crowd?

The recipe makes about four dozen little morsels but this gingersnap recipe doubles well, in case you want to make them for a bakesale or Holiday party. It’s one of those reliable recipes you’ll want to reach for every time you need to make cookies.
