DESSERT: Jazzy Chocolate-Chip Cardamom Gingerbread Man Cookes

I added a fresh twist to my classic gingerbread man cookies recipe by using chocolate chunks, nutmeg, ginger paste, chopped whole cardamom and cloves.
  • I replaced the all-spice in my previous recipe with 1/2 tsp of nutmeg powder and a single chopped cardamom
  • Ginger powder was replaced by 1/2 tsp of ginger paste - you can also finely chop ginger and run it through a garlic press
  • Instead of clove powder, I finely chopped approximately 4-6 cloves
  • Finally, a whole dark chocolate bar was chopped into small pieces and added into the batter

Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes and enjoy - bake longer if you prefer crispy cookies.
