Didn't have much of a ginger flavor

I helped my wife make these for a fundraiser we were having. The first set of cookies needed something else done with them to make them sellable. I chopped up some crystalized ginger and added to the mix with a few dashes of allspice and a squeeze of fresh ginger root. That did make a big difference but I doubt we will try this recipe again.

I made these yesterday for a church potluck and everyone who took a cookie ate a bite and tossed the cookie out. I didn't care much for them either. The measurements must be off. Rock hard edges, soft centers and flavors didn't mix. I will continue with my old TNT Swedish recipe.
