On a whim, I made a batch of ginger cookies. I hadn't had any in quite some time, but I was looking for something on which to spread some leftover chocolate ganache. My first thought was vanilla, but then I started to wonder how that chocolate would taste spread over a ginger cookie. The answer is, in case you're wondering, great. And these cookies taste great by themselves, too. I used the recipe from the King Arthur Flour's Baking Companion. The result was spicy without being overwhelming and very moist.
