This is my second time posting this very tasty Five Spice Ginger Cookie recipe. I first created these bites last Fall, for the 3rd Annual Calgary Food Bloggers Bake Sale. They were a delicious hit and so tasty my mouth is watering looking at the picture. You can find the original recipe post from September here: Five Spice Ginger Cookies.
I am re-posting this recipe in all it’s infinite glory as I am entering the Sweet Dreams Cookie Contest by Crosby’s. This is actually a perfect reminder I have two containers of Crosby’s Fancy Molasses sitting in my pantry needing to get used up. I know I’ll be making them again soon. Probably this week. Maybe tomorrow.
After deciding I drink to much espresso and eat way to many ginger cookies at a very popular coffee chain, I was inspired to make my own version of this cookie. A healthier version. Had to be the same size however because, after all, bigger is better, isn’t it?! Inspiration comes from everywhere.
I wanted to turn it up a notch and decided to use a favourite spice blend, Five Spice Powder. The aromatic combination of spices would be the perfect match in this cookie. My gamble paid off as it’s an explosion of equally balanced flavours in every bite.
Taste testers love this monster cookie and I think you will too.
