Triple Ginger Cookies

Pin It

Today is an exciting day!   A special thanks to Lindsay and Julie for organizing their 3rd annual Cookie Swap.  By signing up, I donated money to a great cause called Cookies for Kids Cancer  and I was required to bake 3 dozen cookies and send a dozen to 3 bloggers and in return I received 1 dozen cookies from 3 other bloggers.  Of course, the main event is raising money for this important cause - hundreds of bakers signed up and almost $14,000 was raised (this included corporate matches from OXO, Grandma's Molasses, Dixie Crystal Sugar and Gold Medal Flour).

In the last month I have received some wonderful cookies from these bakers... I'm glad I took pictures when I did because they didn't last long at our place!

The order I received the cookies - first up Thumb Prints:

Next Lemon Shortbread

And lastly, Toffee Oatmeal with Chocolate

All of these cookies were delicious.... each had a favorite ingredient of mine in them - thanks so much Sarah, Stacy and Krista!

Now for my cookie.... I had fun looking through my cookbooks because the requirements called for a new recipe.  I found this one from one of my favorite authors Debbie Macomber and her Christmas Cookbook (I'm a huge fan of the Cedar Cove books).

So without further adieu I'm presenting these Triple Ginger Chocolate Chunk Cookies.  I really hope the three gals I baked for enjoyed them and I apologize that I forgot to write what the cookies were.  My cookies went to Lynn at Turnips 2 Tangerines, Katie at Blonde Ambition Blog and Maria at Maria of the Best.

  1. I am so glad that you enjoyed the cookies! Yours look absolutely amazing! I would love for you to come link them up with me on Friday, I am having a Christmas Cookie Exchange and since I didn't get to try yours I would love to make some :) It was so good to meet you through this Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap!

  2. Wow lucky you! They all look so wonderful and yours looks amazing!!

  3. This event sounds like so much fun! I'm so bummed that I didn't know about it in time to sign up for this year, but I added myself to the mailing list for next year. Can't wait to join the party!

  4. Hi Deb~ Thank you so much for your delicious cookies! They were absolutely fantastic:) I am sorry I didn't get a chance to take picture of the cookies I was sent, this was my first time participating and my hubby and I ate them all before I could take pictures:) I added your name and link to my post.

  5. Thank you SO MUCH for the cookies, Deb! I loved them! And now I know why- I *love* ginger. I can't wait to bake them myself!

  6. Your cookies look great. You've "out gingered" me; I've only ever done double ginger before. So I'm going to have to try adding fresh ginger to see if I can "hit a triple, too!"

    This was my first year participating in the Cookie Swap; I made Soft-Baked Gingersnap Molasses Cookies, 3 ways. Had great fun and enjoyed getting exposed to so many other passionate food bloggers.

    Happy holidays!
