"I based this recipe on Michele's Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies II, and had a WOW! moment when I added the ginger."

packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups
chopped crystallized ginger
No doubt the *** BEST *** cookies I have ever made !!! I added the spice ginger, but omitted the crystallized ginger. Then I added chopped walnuts. WOW - these are fantastic!!!!
My ginger loving mom liked these cookies a lot but she eats candied ginger alone! The texture was fabulous with a grainy exterior and soft interior. I thought the ginger was too much and I didn't even add a whole cup because it sounded like ALOT. The ginger overwhelmed the peanut butter. I will definitely try again without ginger though because I liked the texture.
Great cookies but too much sugar/salt in this recipe. If you are going to take out the candied ginger, then you need to cut the salt for sure. I cut half the shortening, half the sugar, and half the salt. Then I grated in a tbsp or 2 of fresh ginger instead of a cup of candied. Really good cookies!
i love the ginger in this!!!!! i did want to have a bit more peanutbutter taste, so i used 2 cups of peanutbutter and added some extra oatmeal to make up for it, and it was fabulous!!!!!!!
I read all the reviews and took those into consideration before starting. I cut the candied ginger to 1/2 cup and the salt to half, but left the rest the same. I used a jelly roll pan to spread out the dough and made bars with it. They were fabulous. Very light, but chewy and great flavor. My kids won't touch, so more for me!!!
This is a great recipe. I left out the crystalized ginger (cause i forgot to buy it:) oops) But the cookies still came out delicious.. Its also an easy one.. My 10yr made them.. Great Recipe
This recipe came out really good. I added at least 1 1/2 c of oatmeal, and I would also recommend cutting a bit of the salt. Great, unique recipe.
Nice combination of flavors with a little zing of ginger in the end.
