This is a spiced cookie, great for holiday dessert tables and gift boxes. With a cracked surface, chewy edges, and a sparkly sugar crust, this cookie gets spice and heat from freshly grated ginger. Its cracked surface is the result of a large amount of sugar, which is offset by the assertive whole-wheat flour. The texture—whether crispy or chewy—depends on how long the cookies are baked, so you can adjust the baking time to your preference.
