While my intention wasn't to create a recipe that reminded me of my mother's baking, that is exactly what happened with these cookies. I took a bite and it was almost like I was eating my mum's coveted sour cream ginger cake. Piled with whipped cream it remains one of my favourite food memories. These cookies are soft and cake-like with a slight crunch from a sprinkling of coarse sugar before baking. This isn't a chewy ginger molasses cookie. The ratio of flour to fat is higher, which gives them the cake like texture. I've decided that these cookies are best layered with cocowhip to make trifle. Really Amazing as a dessert. I might see what happens if I just bake the dough in a loaf pan sometime. And then easy to rip into chunks for a dessert, but I also like the look of having a perfect circle cookie to garnish.
