Ginger Cookies, Quick and Easy


Ginger Cookies

Ginger cookies, with a glass of milk or a cup of tea, are a wonderful treat, especially as winter approaches and the days grow colder. I’ve been invited to a pre-holiday luncheon that includes a cookie exchange, so it seems like the perfect time to try another recipe I spotted in The Cruising Cook by Shirley Herd. I previously posted a recipe for cherry cobbler from this same cookbook. Please see that post if you would like a great dessert recipe:  Cherry Cobbler, Quick and Easy. As you can see, I love quick and easy recipes, especially for desserts. This one, like the cherry cobbler, calls for only three ingredients, or four if you count the water.Ginger cookie ingredients
