1 1/2 cups
1 1/2 cups
packed light brown sugar
semisweet chocolate chips
finely chopped crystallized ginger
Delicous, and has just a little sparkle of an aftertaste. Much too good to give the kids--although they love it.
Ok, a pain to make especially chopping the ginger. Baked 350 for 10 mins, otherwise they turn out too dark.
This is a very good recipe if you don't like the extra sweet style of regular chocolate chip cookies. My family and friends loved the cookies, and I wiil be making them again. For an added twist, put in half the amount of ginger, and and 2 tables spoons of cinniman. Very good!
Absolutely loved these! Definitely do not omit the ginger-it is what makes these cookies delicious and unique. Perfect soft and chewy texture. The recipe was extremely easy to make and chopping the ginger was not hard at all. Also instead of using chocolate chips try using chopped up pieces of chocolate, it melts better and is more flavorful.
Great! I followed recipe almost exactly. I forgot to add milk, but they came out fine without it. I also, omitted the crystalized ginger, and just used 1.5 tsp of powdered ginger. This added just the right amount, I can't imagine how strong the ginger would be if I had used the amount the recipe called for. I also only used 2.5 cups of mini chocolate chips, and that was plenty. My family LOVES these cookies.
You have to really love strong ginger to enjoy these cookies ... it overpowered all else. Baked flat.
Finely chopping the ginger is a pain so instead I made tiny cubes and cut them back to a 1/2 cup. The sweetened chunks of ginger adds an extra chewy surprize. I love these cookies
I despise ginger, so getting a 4 star rating from me for a ginger based recipe is a pretty big deal! My hubby and I are boaters and this is the PERFECT food to eat at sea. Simple carbs are stomach settling and so is ginger; combining the two makes for a happy tummy at sea! This is the first super gingery food I have found that I can stand to eat, and I have tried a zillion recipes.
