On Wednesday afternoon I bake cookies with the kids and today that ginger biscuits. To make ginger cookies you don't need a difficult recipe or bring a multitude of ingredients in the house. Most of you probably already have them in the pantry. Nor does the recipe takes a lot of effort.
And the ginger cookies are very tasty. I'm just going to quietly sit down and have a nice cup of coffee to drink. It was pure enjoyment.
Baking cookies is easy
Baking cookies isn't difficult. You make sure that the ingredients are very cold. Thereby the cookies will run out less on the baking sheet and keep its form. If you want to bake your cookies even better, leave them to become very cold in the refrigerator (about half an hour). Then immediately put them in the warm oven and you will see that your cookies will look great!
