Ginger-Toffee Cookies

by on April 24, 2008 · 5 comments

If all goes well, I’ll have a few different recipes today. So far, I just have one, and it happens to be something I mentioned a few months ago – Ginger Toffee Cookies, made with Bits o’ Brickle. Bits o’ Brickle is not one of my favorite ingredients because I hate things that stick to my teeth. Luckily, in this recipe, they aren’t too sticky. They just add a nice crunch to a flavorful and spicy cookie. I followed the recipe as written on link….


….but used 1/4 cup shortening and 1/2 cup butter rather than all butter and threw in a dash of cayenne. I also rolled the cookies in sparkly sugar because I like how it looks (and forgot to buy turbinado).

So I’ve wrapped the dough tightly, set it in the freezer and will thaw and bake it Saturday AM.

For me, it’s worth the stuck-in-the-teeth annoyance. I love those toffee bits! Can’t wait to hear how these turn out.

I made these cookies last week! They are delicious and I got lots of compliments. I will definitely make them again. I may go with 1/2 butter and 1/2 shortening and add cayenne the next time just to try it differently. This recipe is a keeper!
I love this website! My friend told me about it recently! Keep up the good work!

These cookies are awesome! I have been making them nonstop! I double the recipe and freeze the cookies. They last several months in the freezer and taste yummy frozen.
I submitted this recipe to the Houston Chronicle Holiday Cookie challenge in November 2009. It was selected as one of the top 12 cookie recipes from 125 submitted as a Holiday Cookie favorite. The recipe was in the December 9th, 2009 food section in the Roll with the Dough article. When I submitted the recipe I did give credit to Cookie Madness as the source of the recipe. Thanks for posting such wonderful recipes!

Congratulations! It is a good recipe. I’ll try to find it in the Chronicle’s recipe database.
