I recently bought some ginger & walnut cookies from a local cafe, which were divine, but understandibly the owner was reluctant to part with the recipe. I suspect that aside from walnuts & ginger, there may also be honey in the mix, but i'm not certain. I'd be interested to hear any members recipes with the 2 main ingredients mentioned above, regardless of whether they produce the exact cookie i've mentioned. Variations & innovations are welcome.
