Spicy Frostbite Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon, divided
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 whole egg
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 12 ounce bag semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup pecans, chopped, optional
2 cups powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350. Sift together flour, baking soda, 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, ginger, and salt. Set aside.

Cream butter. Add brown sugar, egg, and vanilla, and beat well. Add sifted ingredients to butter mixture. Gently fold in nuts and chocolate chips.

Refrigerate overnight or until firm. Form balls using 1 tablespoon of dogh.

Mix remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon with powdered sugar. Roll balls in sugar mixture. Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 12-15 minutes.

This recipe came from a wonderful book, The Search for the Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie by Gwen Steege, I was lucky enough to find it at the Bookman in Orange. A great used bookstore!

As for the cookies themselves, they went to my step-dad’s work and I hear they were eagerly eaten!
