Chewy Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies


I made these almost a month ago, and then completely forgot to do the post (?!). These cookies are near the top of my list of favorites, but they are a little labor-intensive (especially if you don't have a dishwasher, and your kitchen sink was designed by someone with a playhouse in mind).

I saw these popping up on lots of blogs this Christmas. They came from Martha, so here is the recipe. These cookies are really chocolatey and spicy - they have lots of fresh ginger in them. And if you get them out of the oven on time, they stay chewy for days.

I consider these perfect for all year. I love a good chewy cookie.

P.S. I want to ride a bike across Kansas, too. That must have been crazy.
