It seems that Sundays around here were meant for baking. I invited my good friend and fellow blogger, Samantha Nitti, over for a festive baking party which included and was not limited to, listening to records of various festive sorts, sipping eggnog and hot chocolate and catching up on each others lives. It was great to spend time with Samantha and I always feel like I get to know her a little better each time we see each other. As I’ve said before, baking is very therapeutic. The recipe we decided to use was from The Kitchen McCabe but we both love chocolate and found it very fitting to stuff each cookie with a chocolate chunk. Samantha and I actually initially bonded over our love of chocolate chunks. The recipe is very easy to follow and only takes about 25 minutes to make. The outcome was a classic chewy ginger snap with a creamy chocolate center. We had also decided last minute to throw some crushed sea salt on the top. Yes, we both love the ‘salted everything’ craze but it just adds a whole new dimension of flavor to these cookies. We loved everything about the cookies and Harrison can attest to that as he was our Official Taste Tester. These cookies would make a great holiday treat to share or to give as a scrumptious gift.
