Have I lost my mind?! Quite possibly. The other day, I made chicken with garam masala and thought to myself: “This is savory but it has a lot of the traditional warming spices we use in baking. I wonder what it would taste like in a cookie?” After that, I had to try it. Since Garam Masala is more smoky and earthy in flavor, I wanted to pair it with something that had a little bit of brightness and sweetness. Candied ginger was the perfect pairing for the garam masala!
This is not a cookie to eat when you want a sweet treat. This is not a cookie to make when you need some for a party. This is not a cookie that is for the faint of heart!
This is, however, a cookie that would be great for those that love curry and ethnic cuisine. This is a cookie that is perfect for people that see interesting flavor profiles as enjoyment. This is a cookie that will take you out of your chocolate chip cookie rut.
