I`ve been stressed out lately with studying, graduate school stuff, and just life that cookies are a must! Who doesn`t love a good cookie, right? Chocolate chip cookies, as classic drop cookies, are simple and easy to bake often. Growing older, I have learned to appreciate more “adult flavors” and wanted to try ginger lemon as drop cookies.
As a lover of all lemon-flavored desserts, I knew I was going to love these! My first encounter with this ginger-lemon flavor combo was when I tried the ginger lemon cupcake from Sprinkles Cupcakes. Yeah, I totally fell in love with that cupcake! I`m devastated they no longer offer it in their menu anymore. I need to learn how to make them! I transfer that love into cookies, because I can bake cookies way better than cupcakes.
I folded in some white chocolate to add a little sweetness to the cookies. These cookies could be made 3 ways with a little strawberry jam!
First option: simply follow the directions.
Second: roll the dough into a round ball, make an indent in the center, and scoop a little strawberry jam in there, like thumbprint cookies!
Third option: Scoop a little dough, add jam in middle, top with more dough and round it off into a ball.
Yay, for making cookies multiple ways! Heck, I`m sure this applies to most drop cookies when you want to be creative. Because, drop cookies are magical. And simple. And totally not fussy, at all! Don`t you love that?
