    Hi, Adam. I don’t have a mixer; do you think I could still make these racist cookies successfully by hand-mixing?

  • Jay

    You know, that only Recipe Directions are copyrightable.

    The List of ingredients isn’t.

    So if you retell the Direction Process in your own words, you should be fine.

    Ok….TOTALLY didn’t get this post…can someone please explain?!

    LOL, OK.

    As a minority, should I be offended. And yes, ginger cookies do make my minority-filled house smell good.

  • A Mouse Bouche

    oh evil cookies. you had me at persecution.

    …you had me at persecution.

  • AussieAmy

    I totally agree! These are the most FANTASTIC cookies for the holidays. Sniffffffffff. I can almost smell them baking now!

  • Matt

    Was that not the hardest text to read… ever? Minus the red one with Ina. Maybe I’m going color blind. Fun.

    I do heart a good ginger cookie, though.

  • Karen

    Um…I think if I was Ina Garten, I would be offended with the words “I kill you” typed over my face.

  • Alison

    So funny! And those bigoted ginger cookies look yummy!

    Nice cookies, crappy post.

    Whatever. This was a *&(*@#&$ AMAZING post!

    I loved it.


    I’m totes making the cookies.

    You’re great!

  • piccola

    Oh, come ON, people – lighten up. It’s absurd humour. I’m sure Ina gets it.

  • Cali

    WTF? Is this supposed to be funny? Really. NOT. Funny.

  • Tim

    I thought it was funny and the irony of it coming from a Gay Jewish boy made it even more so. As a gay atheist who loves christmas all I can say is mazeltoff and merry christmas my fellow minority.

    I’d hate to hear what they had to say about the Black and White Cookies.

    I blame their generation, really. They were raised (they rose) not knowing any better. The next batch will come out of the oven not seeing color. They’re our future.

  • Sara Rose

    Oh goodness, this was so funny. I think I may make these cookies, they look appetizing. I snorted and hooted reading this. People need to get a little humor- not everything has to be PC all the time. We celebrate the holiday season in this household. Period. :)

  • Eric

    All your cookie sheet are belong to us?

  • Karen

    Must everything be about black/white, gay/straight, rich/poor. I’m sooo tired.

  • Sam

    It’s not like it was the great “srkimps” debacle of ’07. :)

    (I still say “srkimps” when I make shrimp. :D

  • Lydia

    Don’t worry about those humourless Scrooges, Adam. They are just jealous that they don’t have a well-read food blog. That post was awesome. ESPECIALLY the Ina photo. Although the green text was a bit hard to read.

    Strange post, but whatever…

    I just made these cookies and they were the most ginger-intense cookies ever! I found that you can get almost twice as many cookies if you make them smaller. Also, use butter for the oil for a more genuine flavor (cream the butter w/ the sugars). I also used demerara sugar which has a bigger grain and looks awesome in the cookies.

    Thanks Adam! Well, actually, thanks Ina!

  • Bintou

    You make me laugh a lot :)

  • Stephie

    Somewhere Jeff Dunham (or his puppet pal Achmed)’s ears are burning…

    My mom would soooo love these cookies!

  • JudyH

    You are a nut. I mean that in a good way.

  • Ruth

    Following up on my own query at the top of this post: If anyone was curious about whether or not this recipe can be made successfully without a mixer, the answer is a resounding “no.” Santa, bring me a Kitchenaid!
