Tuesdays with Dorie (Dorie’s Cookies): Double-Ginger Crumb Cookies

Dorie Greenspan Double-Ginger Crumb Cookies on eatlivetravelwrite.comThis week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe from Dorie’s Cookies made my house smell amazing and very “holiday”-like on the first weekend in December!

These ginger cookies include fresh ginger in the cookie dough (Dorie’s “do-almost-anything vanilla cookie dough“) and powdered ginger in the crumble topping for a double hit of warmth. I always have trouble with the cookies in this book involving crumble-type toppings – mine never looks quite right and either clumps in the middle or falls off the top. Apart from baking these in muffin tins, what else can I do to fix this? Ideas?

    Yummo – your cookies look good to me. I really liked these – not pretty to look at, but tasty. I have no ideas on the crumb because I often find it tricky too. It’s not an Aussie “thing” to make biscuit crumbs especially to adorn the top of baked goods.

    Wait. What happened?

    Mr. Neil is a huge ginger freak: how’d these totally bypass me and make their way out of the house?!?!?!

    Guess you need to make another batch to perfect your “clumping” issue. 😉

    I love your fluted edges! They look spectacular!

    these look so pretty, regardless of crumb issues! does the crumb fall off after baking, too, or do you mean just when you are placing it on?

    Agreed with others that these look perfect. Sounds like you need to make another batch for Mr. Neil.
