American Valley Baking in Quincy California hands down!
Three different kinds of ginger are the secret according to the baker, Dale, who grew-up in the family business. The spiciness of cinnamon, cloves, and molasses shine through in this divine treat. Nice chewiness and bit of a snap -- my dream cookie. American Valley Baking makes a variety of desserts and breads, but I went right for the gingersnap.
That's all you need to know. American Valley Baking is very small and local. No Facebook. No website. The focus is on the baking. Thank you for that!
This cookie is worth a road trip to Plumas County which includes other incredible offerings in the great outdoors along lakes, rivers, valleys and under blue skies.
