    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    These may be made up to five days ahead and stored in an airtight container. I purchase my crystallized ginger in a bulk spice store, but any major grocery store such as Safeway should sell it. Plan ahead the dough needs to chill for a minumum of 1 hour. These cookies are really good!

      OMG, these are my new favorite cookie. Please be SURE the dough is well chilled AND re-chill the balls before baking or it all flattens out, lol. These are the best tasting morsels ever! Thanks Kitz & Merry Christmas!
