Ginger Sea-salt Dark Chocolate Cookies
Those of you who know me well, know that I like my desserts on the savory side. This recipe is inspired from Dana (Minimalist Baker fame), who was in turn inspired to create her recipe from Joy the Baker. She says, if you like ginger, you must make these cookies. If you don’t like ginger, you must make these cookies. And so, that’s exactly what I did, except for a few modifications to bring out the ginger and sea-salt flavors, and reduce the sweetness. Baking is an exact science that requires a few trial-and-error sequences, so after multiple attempts at getting it just right (and off-loading the sometimes too-thin/ too-crumbly ones on my unsuspecting coworkers), I have perfected this recipe.
So without further ado, here is the recipe for this decadent, light, chewy yet crumbly cookie. You can literally follow this recipe blind-folded; the only word of caution I’m obliged to give you is – try not to inhale the whole lot in one sitting. It’s one of those, once you pop, you can’t stop situation. I mean, come on, bite-sized pillowy little clouds of butter infused goodness aren’t meant to be eaten one at a time. No matter, try to ration them so the rest of your world knows what they were missing out on.
