So here's the recipe. I cheated a little, because there's nothing more annoying to me than grating ginger, so I keep this stuff around for instances such as these. You can get it at the co-op, and it pretty much lasts forever.
The other finicky thing about this recipe is that you have to refrigerate the dough for two hours, and then again for 20 minutes. I'm not sure why (hey, I never claimed to be an expert), but I'm not gonna mess with perfection, so I just do what Martha tells me to do. The nice thing about all these annoying and time-consuming activities (waiting for dough to rise, refrigerating cookies for hours before you cook them, waiting for milk to cool to room temperature, etc.) is that you can do other things while you're waiting. Like laundry. Or watching six episodes of How I Met Your Mother. For instance.
Now that these cookies are gone, I have to find something else to bake. Any suggestions?
