Finally back into my baking moods after 1 month break! Love this batch of ginger cookies! Most ginger cookies I come across uses ginger powder and others ground spices. This particular recipe uses fresh ginger instead and incorporated salty black olives which add some savoury taste to these cookies :)
What are these? Fresh ginger & pitted black olives! unique combination :)
