    As spoken prior:

    It is November, and Cookie Season is upon us. I need to start baking cookies, as I have requests for ginger snaps, oatmeal chocolate chip, peanut butter blossoms, gingerbread, and sugar cookies, but those are all a lot of different posts, coming soon.

    Yes, my French is horrible…. But my cookies are great. Announcing the opening of the Bad Wolf Cookie Season. May your diets know fear…

    Simply stated:

    It is the holidays, Eat, Drink and Be Merry, for Congress is in session and none of our liberties are secure. January 1, 2014 is coming shortly, and we will all make “Resolutions”, (Usually about losing weight…), so before the sack cloth and ashes, live a little…

    These cookies are highly addictive, and derive their chewy texture and spicy flavor from adding brown sugar, molasses, and ground spices (cinnamon, cloves, and ginger in three forms, Ground, Fresh and Candied) to a cookie.

    There are differences (think Jihad) of opinion as to how ‘spicy’ a gingersnap cookie should be, so adjust the batter to suit your own individual taste, I for one want a cookie that bites back, so ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and cloves, all fresh grated will be added to my standard brown sugar cookie dough, and the addition of a tot of good bourbon, ad a few twists of black pepper for the official RogueChef taste twist.

    A hand full of these with a big glass of eggnogg will put an end to Santa’s night. (That way my grandkids can hold him for ransom….)
