Pastry - Tru

Bobfrmia | Feb 5, 2004 04:41 PM

In my local paper yesterday there was a recipe for Chewy Ginger Drops from Gail Gand, the pastry chef at Tru. She chose ginger because "it has long been known as a great aphrodisiac".
Now, I've never baked cookies before, but with 6 inches of snow, and it's still coming down and may never end, this might be a good time to try.
If I'm pretty much stuck home all weekend with my GF, what else is there to do? Has anyone had them? Are they the natural Viagra? Any tips for baking cookies?
Maybe a gen board question, but hey, you people should know Tru.
