To close out my week of sweets, this morning I woke up at the butt crack of dawn to put these Chewy Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies in the oven. I didn't shower like I had planned on, or start addressing our holiday cards, but I baked cookies. My priorities are all sorts of weird! However, I think my morning was productive because these, are, DELICIOUS. I highly recommend them. I added one egg yolk to the wet ingredients for richness and to add to the chewiness and super crackly crust. I recommend that as well, because I think the dough would have been crumbly without it.
More bad (but so good) stuff to come next week! 'Tis the season!
