    Kishka's Note:

    Ok, technically, this is not my sister Avi's original recipe - it comes from the Fannie Farmer cookbook. But she tweaked it by adding the chopped crystallized ginger (and eliminated the sugar coating) which elevates this cookie from good to the kind people ask you the recipe for. Careful, these are highly addictive!
