Top Review by Aroostook

Recipenut, These are fabulous ginger cookies! They were a great hit this weekend at camp. Saturday was nippy and cold and we had a lot of company. Rack after rack of these cookies disappeared as soon as they out of the oven. The sweetened consensed milk, three tablespoons of ground ginger and 3/4 c. crystallized ginger presented the only downside of this recipe..i.e. expense. However, I will be sure to make this recipe again for special occassions. Thanks for posting! Barb
