I know a lot of my cookies look similar sometimes, but these little babies are so good - I'm calling them spiced honey puffs. They're crispy on the outside but soft and fluffy in the middle and they're faintly sweet and full of ginger and cinnamon.
Not pictured: how I tried to soften the butter in the oven beforehand and forgot about it. My entire apartment filled up with smoke - I thought the fire alarm was going to go off. There was a lot of fretful dancing up and down and attacking of the oven with a wet scrubber to get the butter off (and half melting the sponge in the process.)
The cookies were still worth it.
