RECIPE: Easy Spicy Ginger Cookies

This is a really yummy ginger cookie.  And because you use the store-bought cookie dough, it couldn't be easier!

Here's what you do:

Easy Spicy Ginger Cookies (adapted from Family Circle magazine 11/29/07)
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 Tablespoon cocoa powder
1 Tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1-3/4 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
1 tube refrigerated sugar cookie dough (16.5 oz size)
1 Tablespoon milk
1/2 cup raw sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a mixing bowl, whisk the flour, cocoa powder, pumpkin pie spice, ginger, baking soda and white pepper.  Break up the cookie dough into the bowl and knead until everything is fully incorporated.  Add the milk and knead until smooth.  Using a small ice cream scooper (about 1 Tablespoon size), scoop cookie dough and coat with the raw sugar.  Place on ungreased baking sheets about 2" apart and press slightly.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 12 minutes.  Let cool on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes.  Remove to wire rack and cool completely.

These are spicy, chewy and crunchy all in one bite!

I made ginger cookies, once and really loved them. I have no idea why I have not made them recently but thanks to you, I am seriously thinking about doing it.

Thanks for linking this to My Meatless Mondays so I could find my ginger cookies again.
