About this Cook
I'm 13 and probably the strangest person I know. I stare at things. It's fun. For further information, carefully examine my username.
My favorite things to cook
I'm fond of cooking light, fruity desserts or anything with cinnamon in it. I'm not good at making meringue, and I despise doing so anyway. I also like making exotic foods with lots of spices.
My cooking triumphs
I'm good at making fruit tarts and food decoration. I'm also good at completely ignoring whatever a recipe says and doing the complete opposite. Luckily, it usually somehow works.
My cooking tragedies
Never make carrot cake with baking soda if it doesn't have an acid in it. *sigh* I usually add lemon juice or buttermilk, now.

I love this recipe! It is, in fact, my favorite thing to bake. Everyone loved them immensely, and I like the fact that they're spicy, a pretty unusual taste for a cookie. This is actually one of the only kinds of cookies I will eat, because most are sickeningly sweet (to me). And I like the small size. They came out looking like something from a professional bakery. I left out a few spices because I didn't have them, so I increased the amount of cinnamon to 2 tsp and ginger to 1 tsp. I also added 1 cup of almonds instead of 3/4, and also added a few tablespoons of finely chopped walnuts. Overall, I think the cookies came out well. The recipe was well-written and easy to use.
