I’m sure most people are on a healthy new year kick and limiting their cookie consumption right now, but I have a delicious recipe that has to be shared today. It’s too good to keep a secret and if you’re limiting your sugar intake, just bookmark this post and save it for a time when you need the perfect cookie recipe.
All you really need to know is that these cookies are amazing and you should definitely make at a some point. I made some for our NYE party last weekend and they were a huge hit.
The story behind these cookies starts with Isaac and his love for the vegan + gluten free gingersnap cookies made and sold at Ellwood Thompsons, a locally owned organic market here in Richmond. The cookies are dense, chewy and extra gingery – everything a gingersnap cookie should be. Isaac buys one almost every time we stop by Ellwood’s, which is often.
One large cookie sets him back $1.99. Now that’s a small price to pay for a large and exceptional cookie, but you know me and my copy cat recipes – I had to try to make my own comparable version of said cookie.
A couple batches of gingersnaps later and I think I have the perfect recipe. Although this recipe makes smaller cookies than the ones we buy at Ellwood’s, Isaac did a taste test with a cookie from my batch and a cookie we bought from Ellwood’s and said it was spot on!
Long story short, these cookies so good you could probably sell them for $1.99 a cookie. Or just bake them and eat 3 in one sitting. <– Not that I did that or anything.

I hope you enjoy these cookies as much as Isaac and I do. Happy Monday!
