I first saw this recipe in a Martha Stewart magazine.I tried it-and it quickly became a big favorite!Between the chocolate and chopped ginger,it combines the best of two worlds in one bite!Usually these would be just "everyday cookies" as I say,meaning if it rains or snows,or if a game is on-we make cookies!But these are truly so yummy that my family now asks for them also at Christmas time too,along with our other traditional and special Christmas cookies! It's gotta be a good one tho to be in my holiday category!Enjoy.. as much as we do!!

  • 5Sprinkle pinches of white sugar on top of each cookie before baking.Can use colored sugars too!
  • 6**Bake for betw about "11-15" min..OR until the tops are slightly cracked.
    Careful not to overbake bec they will be too hard.
  • 7**I played with the cooking times from the original recipe.Time varies for whatever reason.Naturally the size you make them effects the cooking time too.You may do as I do..and just watch carefully till done-always within the time frames listed.
    Once they're done,be prepared to hide the goods! Warm ones are deadly!
