I love gingerbread cookies…the chewy kind…not ginger snaps, not the hard kind.
One day, about three years ago, hubby and traveled to Elkader, Iowa. It’s about a 50 minute drive from our house. We were doing a little day trip and Elkader is perfect for that. There’s a river that runs through town, three LARGE antique shops, and a quilt shop. While looking around town we noticed a bakery. I have very fond memories of my hometown bakery in New Richland, Minnesota so I couldn’t resist going in. Hubby picked the usual donuts and bismarks…I picked a large gingerbread boy cookie. OH…my they were amazing! Ever since, I have told all my kids if you go to Elkader…bring me a cookie.
Wednesday was my birthday… Kelli brought me a whole STACK of gingerbread boys. I couldn’t resist and had to bite into one…
Check out how thin they are…yet they are totally chewy! How do they do that? The cookies are honestly my favorite cookie…EVER. I shared a couple but have been hoarding the rest. I’ve been allotting myself one cookie a day.
Sadly the cookies are running out….
Aren’t they just the cutest? If anyone has a recipe that would make the cookies thin and chewy cookies like these, please pass the recipe on to me. I love making roll out cookies…I just need the perfect recipe.
