I don't remember how I found this recipe (I think it might have been from the Kitchn) but, oh my God, these cookies are amazing. I made them last night for a potluck, and it took all my willpower not to eat them all right then. They turned out much darker than in Rachel's pictures so I was a little nervous, but the gingerbread was spicy and chewy and very crunchy on the outside - basically, it was perfect. If you need a Christmas cookie and haven't had luck with anything you've baked so far, try these. Seriously.

your baking time.
|Mmmm Hershey's milk chocolate kisses!|
|Aren't they adorable?!?!?!|
You roll the dough into balls and then roll that in some granulated sugar. For the first batch, the cookies were a little too small, so make sure you scale your cookie to the size of your chocolate kisses!
|I don't know if there is anything more beautiful than melted |
|First delicious bite! And yup, melted |
chocolate is the best.
You can find the recipe at Baked by Rachel. I am definitely going to be trying more of her recipes!
And I had but one penny in the world. Thou should'st have it to buy gingerbread.
