Favorite Cookie [001-010] : The Results are in!

Chewy Chocolate Ginger Cookies

Chewy Chocolate Ginger Cookies are the winner!

Granted, I only polled 5 (6 if you include me) faithful cookie-eaters, but 3 out of the 6 voted for these babies! Why? Because of the "great texture," "good combination of flavors," and just how different they were. Yes, I agree, out of the 10 cookies I have made thus far, these were my favorite by far. Here's a (very tiny) reminder of the other 9 contenders:

PfeffernussenButtery Pecan RoundsDouble Chocolate Brownies
Orange Cardamom MadeleinesPine Nut CookiesSnickerdoodles
Banana Walnut Chocolate-Chunk CookiesRaspberry-Almond BlondiesButter "Twists"

Yes, there were some other really good ones too, let us not forget. Remember the Snickerdoodles? Or those Double Chocolate Brownies? Yeah, good times.

Other friends voted for the Raspberry-Almond Blondies (because they were "light, fruity, good, and different"), the Pfeffernussen (because they were "very unique" albeit "a lil' messy"), and one person even voted for the Butter Twists (she likes the "saltiness and the plainness" and personally, she's a fan of dry cookies and all their glorious "simplicity"...but she's also crazy, that one).

Chocolate Ginger Cookies, Ready

So what about you? Have you made any of the ones I have? What did you think?

Or perhaps you've made others in the book, and you've got a different favorite? I'd love to hear...because I've gotta pick another cookie for next week!

ok so i want to know how i can be on the tasting committee... i know i've made some of martha's cookies but i get her cookie of the week emails so i don't know what's in the book

Lizzie said...

To be on the tasting committee, you have to be within arms reach of my cookies. If you have long arms, you have a good advantage

Ellen said...

let me know when it's a baking day and i'll be within arm's reach... unless you are already back in CA then i might have a problem with that


Lizzie said...

ellen-- yes yes of course i will let you know! i'm in california for now, but the baking will never stop!
