“I found these yummy ginger cookies on Allrecipes a while back. They are a little different from others in that they have grated fresh ginger in them, rather than dried. This gives the flavor a little kick, especially when you encounter a slightly bigger chunk. If you like ginger, these are the cookies for you! Cook time includes time to chill the dough.”
