Patty's White Chocolate and Ginger Cookies
I have been feeling a little world weary lately, so I decided to bake some cookies, despite the heat, to cheer me up. A little while back, I had seen some White Chocolate and Ginger Cookies on Patty's blog, Patty's Food, and printed off the recipe. I have also had the pleasure of meeting Patty, and I shared a lovely lunch with her when I was in San Francisco last year.
How could you go wrong with white chocolate and crystallised ginger in a cookie? They sounded fab. Also, they are low cal - making them a guilt free treat in my book.
I whipped up these cookies fairly quickly, and was surprised that I actually got 24 cookies, as the recipe states. Normally, I get more or less cookies than the recipe states, so these impressed me from the start.
Now, if you are hunkering for a massive cookie to sink your teeth into, these are not it. Only one teaspoon of cookie dough goes into each cookie, so these cookies are more of a bite sized delicacy than a man sized munchie. However, doesn't that actually mean you can eat more of them??
I really liked these cookies, and their Weight-Watchers friendly nature is a bonus for someone like me who expands on the sight of food. Thanks for sharing this treat with us Patty!
