Editor’s note: So on the one hand, I was glad to finally put a name to a cookie that I adore instead of calling it “that thick soft gingery one that’s like a snickerdoodle but not.” Good news there. But on the other hand, I swear to God this is one of the worst cookie names on the planet. Look at the title of the blog: Heather’s Lumberjacks. Brings to mind all manner of sin. And you want to know the story behind the name? I haven’t the foggiest, even after a google, but considering the cookie is a soft, spicy, yummy confection, you could pretty much insert any manner of dirty joke you want. (Which I did. Of course.) Luckily, the cookie will still be delicious, and like Heather, I think making these will have to go on the agenda this weekend. Thanks Heather!
