Tracktown Cookie at Red Wagon Creamery 0

Red Wagon Creamery
55 West Broadway – Eugene, OR

It has been a long time since I ate a cookie good enough to talk about.

But I finally did. Last week. In my hometown. Not at a bakery, even. But at an ice cream joint called Red Wagon Creamery. They make very good ice cream*, but whoever they’ve got in charge of the cookies is no dummy, either.

Ginger Molasses at Whole Foods 2

Whole Foods Market
NE 15th/Fremont – Portland*

I’m sure I’ve mentioned this a couple (or 9) times already, but my fondness for ginger molasses cookies runs deep. I LOVE them. Love.

Which means I’ve eaten (and written about) a lot of different ginger molasses cookies.

Sesame Ginger Molasses at Bushel & Peck 4

Bushel & Peck Bakeshop
3907 NE Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd – Portland

I know I just wrote that I’m having a chocolate chip moment. But my current jam? Sesame seeds. Sesame seeds in sweets, specifically. A drizzle of tahini (sesame butter) and honey with a sprinkle of sea salt on vanilla ice cream? I’m serious. It’s perfect. Do it!

Gingersnap at Bakeshop 0

5351 NE Sandy Blvd – Portland

I have given high praise to two cookies in the past that were both purchased at Ristretto Roasters. Both the Chocolate Chocolate Nib and the Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk, were baked by Kim Boyce, author of the beautiful Good to the Grain baking book.

And now…. Boyce has her very own retail bakery!  Bakeshop opened just this past week on NE Sandy Blvd.  (Her goods will continue to be available at Ristretto – as well as Extracto Coffee House, Breken Kitchen, Case Study Coffee (adjacent to the bakery), and probably a few other joints that I don’t know about.

Ginger Molasses at Common Grounds Coffee House 0

Common Grounds Coffee House
4321 SE Hawthorne Blvd – Portland

Wow. I’m not sure where to begin with this one.  I have talked about 7 different ginger molasses cookies on Carpe Cookie so far, each one of them delicious and worthwhile in its own right.  It can go without saying that the ginger molasses is one of my pets.  I love it.

Ginger Molasses at Dovetail Bakery 0

Dovetail Bakery
3039 NE Alberta St. – Portland

As I have mentioned, I am not a vegan. This, if you have read any of my other cookie reviews, is stating the obvious.  But despite my love of butter and eggs, some of my favorite cookies ever have been, to quote the used car salesman who sold me a 1988 Nissan Pulsar, “critter-free.” (True story: he was a vegan used car salesman and he really did say “critter-free” in reference to his dietary practices.  I’m not making it up. And yes, I really did buy a 1988 Nissan Pulsar (in 1996) – T top convertible, cherry red, btw. It (I?) was pretty smokin’, if you wanna know the truth.)

Ginger Molasses at Lovejoy Bakers 2

Lovejoy Bakers
939 NW 10th Ave – Portland

I know, right?  Another ginger molasses cookie.  What can I say?  I can’t help myself.

I’m not saying I like this less or more than the two other Portland ginger molasseses I’ve talked about, and if asked to chose a favorite between the PearlCrema and this version, I would be hard pressed.   I simply enjoy and appreciate it as a more than satisfactory variation on one of my favorite kinds of cookie.

Ginger Molasses at Pearl Bakery 2

Pearl Bakery

If you’re noticing that there is a disproportionate number of ginger molasses cookies featured here, well, it’s because I have a disproportionate love of ginger molasses cookies.  Because ginger molasses cookies are fucking awesome.

Ginger Cookie at Tall Grass Bakery 0

Tall Grass Bakery
5907 24TH Ave NW – Seattle

The photo tells you most of what you need to know.  But here is the rest: earthy and toothsome – made with whole wheat flour, chunks of candied ginger and plenty of good, dark molasses, this is the Cheech and Chong fatty spliff of the ginger molasses community. Read more »
