Description: Two kinds of ginger give these cookies a spicy kick. Look for crystallized ginger in bags in the baked goods isle, or in the bulk section of your natural foods store. Ginger and chocolate make a nice combination; if you like, drizzle with some melted bittersweet chocolate over the baked, cooled cookies.
