Ginger Curry Cookies

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.
