Giant Ginger Cookies for summer picnics
Giant ginger cookies are crunchy and chewy, the perfect crinkle-top molasses cookie.
This is that classic ginger cookie that you see at bakeries. Sparkle topped and golden it’s one of those timeless recipes that everyone loves.
The first time I baked giant ginger cookies was during a virtual heat wave and I didn’t mind at all. That’s how good they are. My kitchen was like a sauna as I put pan after pan in the oven.
Loaded with ground ginger (That 1 Tbsp. isn’t a typo) they’re flavourful and they have the most delicious texture. Plus they’re very pretty with that little extra sugar sprinkled on top.
I never make jumbo cookies so eating one of these made me feel like I had just come back from the fair with one of those giant twirled lolly pops. And I actually made the cookies smaller than the original recipe calls for.
If you’re looking for good picnic cookies I’d go for these. There’s nothing gooey in them to melt and one per person is enough.Print
