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!!
