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!

I agree - cookies are perfect for those 'need cheering up' days. And these look great! Portion controlled cookies are always sensible too...

I like that when you were feeling world weary, you baked. That's the sort of thing I'd do too :) And yes I never get the exact amount of cookies that are on recipes!

Chocolate and ginger is such a great combination for cheering you up. You must feel you are doing something right if you get the same number of cookies as the recipe - it is a rare recipe where my number matches theirs! Hope you will regain some verve over the weekend :-)
