Giant Ginger Yumminess!

Everyone has their favorite desserts.  My dad would choose a birthday PIE over a cake any day.  I get in a bind over pudding and cookies.  But pudding doesn’t love me as much as I love it, so I am caught in a love affair with COOKIES. This summer my friend Maiah Albi (that’s her there to the left), who I have written about before,  started heating things up at our favorite coffee shop by adding scrumptious treats to the menu.  It started out with cake things and bar things and moved into MY thing….you got it!  Those munchy, crunchy yummy oh’s that make my mouth salivate in ovation!  But that is not all.  They are made with REAL food.  And one of them, which anyone who has hung with me at Calypso Cafe will know, has become my favorite cookie of all-time (uuhhh, except for Mom’s Monster Cookies)…..Maiah’s Ultimate Ginger Cookies.  Let me throw on my best valley girl speak and give a great big OMG to Maiah for her execution of taste in these sweeties!
Well, I am not the only one who knows something good when she tastes it because Maiah recently received props for this lip pleasing confection.  She took first prize in the Eat Healthy Your Way Holiday Cookie Contest. But the taste isn’t the main thing that tantalized the judges into choosing the giant ginger snaps.  Maiah has tweeked her momma’s original recipe so that the recipe she shares with the world is vegan.  So I can have my cookies and eat them too….without feeling guilty. They make my heart happy in two ways.  Congrats you creative culinarian!  For a peek at Maiah’s other yummies, check out her blog http://maiahintexas.blogspot.com/. And stay tuned for My Mom’s Monster Cookies.  They will make a great Halloween treat.
