  • Summary

    This is an amazing soft gingerbread cookie. It has perfect texture and is filled with the warm flavors of molasses, ginger, cinnamon, cloves and black pepper. The rum glaze is a perfect finishing touch. This cookie was shared in the cookbook Sweet by Ottolenghi & Goh. They discovered the recipe in Tartine by Prueitt & Robertson, so I'm unsure to whom I should give credit. With that said, please, please check out both cookbooks - the word amazing doesn't begin to give enough credit. The only thing I changed about Ottolenghi & Goh's Soft Gingerbread Tiles is the addition of coarse sea salt. I find a tiny crunch of salt simply irresistible.
