I would like to try a ginger-based cookie or bar for my Christmas baking this year. I have dozens of recipes (literally..) but thought that I would draw on the collective wisdom of the home bakers here for their ideas. I'm looking for something that's not too complicated, doesn't make massive batches, and keeps well ( a problem for lots of the recipes I've found, since I prefer the softer, chewier cookie). Best keepers are really crisp, hard gingersnaps, but those aren't my favorite.
I was considering Martha Stewart's chocolate gingerbread cookies.. but the recipe notes it only keep for 3 days? Also considered KAF's sticky ginger bars
A recipe I can't locate right from Bill Granger for ginger buttons with lemon icing
A Donna Hay recipe for ginger crunch slice..
Suggestions? What's worked for you? What hasn't?
