Ginger Spice Cookies (Bon Appetit)
Tuesday, June 30, 2009
I donate a pint of blood every 56 days or so. I think it builds good karma (hee hee) and you get served a cookie and juice. It takes very little to amuse me.
I really love my blood donation center...Nurse Jan is so nice!
However, the "don't-pass-out-on-us" post-donation cookie is...well...you know...just okay. Oh, how Tuesdays with Dorie and this baking blog adventure has killed me. I can now taste chemicals in box cake mixes. I can tell if stuff is made with real butter or not. And I can tell those blood donation cookies wandered over from the hospital kitchen.
Today, after giving a few gallons of blood, it FINALLY dawned on me to bring in my own damn cookie!
Of course! I heart ginger so I tried Bon Appétit's Ginger Spice Cookies.
Red Cross will welcome you with open arms and orange juice. Just be sure to plan your treat. You deserve the best! :)
