A beautiful, traditional peanut butter cookie with an added layer of ginger that uplifts the cookie to create a light and refreshing afternoon treat.
By Ariel Rebel
These cookies are hard and crunchy at first but them they start melting in your mouth revealing delicate peanuts, ginger & cardamom flavours. A nice foolproof, easy recipe for when you don’t want to break your head and have a store bought quality cookie.
How long can you last before you eat them all? They lasted 3 days in my house and I had to fight for it because they would have been gone the first night. Oh and did I mentioned they absorb milk PERFECTLY? So please, dunk them!
