Triple-Ginger Cookies

Star anise is a nice change from the cloves, ginger, and cinnamon of the season.  Plus, it’s so pretty.

The blog 101 Cookbooks is beautiful and I love to see what’s going on there, but it’s like stepping into a very private world.  The author strives for a level of purity, both with ingredients and in technique, that makes regular recipes seem a little silly and undisciplined.  It’s esoteric which precisely means it is intended for a small audience (though her readership is huge).  It might not be for everyone, but it is a nice Zen place to go to now and then.  Like at the finale of a cookie bake-a-thon.  These cookies require  some chopping, grinding, and grating, but they are nice ingredients to hang out with and the final cookie is a delight.  You will find the recipe on her blog.

And now, I have to run to the airport.  Seriously.  Through sheer force of bakery, I willed my sons home.  Let the fun begin!

  1. After Allan called we hollered a "THEY'RE HERE", we're so happy for you to have your boys home! Your heart must be pounding outside of your chest! I made these too, we must have been channeling the same cookie vibe.

  2. Okay, Ginger cookie throw down it is. Mine weren't from 101, I used the recipe from Epicurious. They have a nice ginger burn, I wish I had upped the ginger amounts of all three forms though. I'll bring some to school tomorrow.
