A good cookie, but I like the snap of a crunchier cookie. 2 things for this recipe--first, go to the oriental food section of the grocery store and you can buy the TyLing brand crystalized ging...

First of all, do not add 1 Tbs. of cayenne as someone said before. They were way to spicy even for the adults. I had to throw the whole batch away. These came out very doughy. Not chewy or '...

I couldn't find crystallized ginger in the local grocery store, so following one of the earlier reviews, I skipped the crystallized ginger and added extra fresh ginger (THANKS FOR THE ADVICE!). ...

If you love ginger, these are the cookies for you! They give you the full, spicy bite of ginger by using it in all three forms. I had to cook them a little longer than instructed to get them to ...

These were very good. If you like ginger they are the cookie for you. I did find however that they were quite soft (no snap). I will try to decrease the flour a bit next time to get that snap.
