I'm such a softy.
I almost always prefer soft cookies to hard or crispy ones. I most love those varieties which come out of the oven soft and stay that way. I'm not above storing homemade cookies (once cooled) with a slice of bread to keep them as tender and chewy as possible.
The cookie pictured above was given to me by Ian, whose fiance Christa made a batch of nice, soft ginger cookies. I believe Ian told me she substituted ginger for the candied lemon peel suggested in her recipe. And if you're not into softies, the crunchy sugar crystals still gave it some snap.
