1st Bake for the Month! :D

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 :)

Fresh ginger? Now that cookie talking to me. It's calling me to eat it, hahahah!
I hate bakes with dried ginger, the taste is awkward.
