spa ginger cookies


When Saucy was treated to a spa pedicure by her lovely friend Lecia, she was served these delicious spicy chocolate ginger cookies with a cup of gourmet Japanese pear tea. Of course she went home and just had to try making them herself.

If there's one thing you know about Saucy, she likes to keep it real. Real simple. So she visited her pantry and pulled out a Betty Crocker Devil's Food cake mix.

... gooey is not good for cookie dough. You want it firm but smooth and shiny. She grabbed her cookie scoop and made the balls of dough, finishing them like this before placing them on the cookie sheet:



She baked those bad boys at 375 degrees for ten minutes. Guess what? They were perhaps better than the ones at the spa, except for the fact that nobody was rubbing her feet with raspberry lotion. Life's like that. Summary:

1 package devil's food cake mix
2 teaspoons ground dry ginger (she might use more next time)
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon white pepper (again, more)
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
dash of salt
1/2 cup melted butter
1/4 cup dark molasses
2 eggs, lightly beaten

Ugh..how COULD you?! It's 9:45, and I don't have a single box of chocolate cake mix in the house. Brownie mix, yes, cake mix...no. *sigh*

I came along from a link on CRAFT. Thanks!

Miss Saucy, I made these cookies and cannot begin to tell you how delicious I think they are. Your recipe is easy to follow and the cookies were made up in hardly any time at all. The recipe is definitely going in my "keeper file". Thanks!
