Cookie test

I found Garam Masala Chocolate Ginger Cookies via this post by [personal profile] aquinasprime in [community profile] omnomnom, and instantly changed my office party potluck plans from Crack Pie to these little darlings.

(For those who don't know, as I didn't know: The composition of garam masala differs regionally, with wide variety across India. Some common ingredients are black & white peppercorns, cloves, malabar leaves, long pepper (also known as pippali), black cumin (known as shahi jeera), cumin seeds, cinnamon, black, brown, & green cardamom, nutmeg, star anise and coriander seeds. Thank you, Wikipedia. I sent a donation.)

Oh my lord, they're good. Spicy, warm, dark, crisp... I made up the dough last night and baked a trial of four cookies, two snowflakes and two teddy bears. The snowflake I ate was excellent.

Like most gingerbread-style cookies, these aren't super rich (and would probably be just as good with a third less butter), so the calorie count per cookie is reasonably low--100 or so, not counting frosting, which I haven't added yet. I made them gluten-free with excellent results.
