Awhile back, like an entire year ago, RawSpiceBar sent me a free 3-pack of their spices. One of them was a packet called German Gingerbread, which contained a mixture of ginger, coriander, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, black peppercorns, cloves, mace, and star anise. I had been wanting to use the spices, and decided to add a little bit to my regular chocolate chip cookie recipe. I figured they would probably be delicious or disgusting.
Luckily, they turned out delicious! The Gingerbread Spices add a little kick to the traditional recipe, and also give them a warm, wintry, holiday feel. Not to mention, they have a soft, chewy texture with just a bit of crunch around the edges. If you want to try something different, these “Spicy” Double Chocolate Chip Cookies will do the trick! Oh, and they’re healthy!
