Ginger Crinkles by Erin

November 29th marked a bit of a debut for myself as a baker and blogger. I hosted a Community Wide Cookie Swap, open to students of my university and residents of my community. A group of 20 people gathered, bringing their great recipes, knowledge of baking, and appetites. During the event, I passed out a card with my blog address, and announced a promise that  I would be sharing all of the recipes within the next few weeks.

This is the third of a series of posts, focusing on Erin’s Ginger Crinkles. These cookies were soft and full of flavor. Thanks for sharing Erin!
