Fresh Ginger Cookies

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by chiclet

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.

This is a perfect cookie! It's buttery with a strong, fresh ginger flavor and soft yet crisp. It was easy too. I will be making these a lot.
