      These were wonderful Leta. I used fresh ground ginger rather than powder and I am so glad I did! My entire family raved! I also quadrupled the recipe, but ended up with more like 12 dozen cookies rather than the 8 dozen I had anticipated. They were done in exactly 10 minutes (still slightly chewy, which is the way we like them). This recipe has inspired me to try a couple different things as well. If they work out as I expect, then I'll post the final recipe and credit you for the inspiration! Thank you for sharing this recipe Leta!!!

      Bless you Leta!!! These were so simple and so yummy! I've been searching for a similar recipe to Einstein Bros. white chocolate ginger cookies and this fit the bill!!!! Just a tad bit more ginger and its a match! Obviously, this means I added white chocolate chunks to the recipe, but other than that and I made it as-is. I had to freeze them almost immediately...I ate 5 of them before the last batch was even out of the oven!

      Wonderful cookies! I used butter flavor Crisco for the shortening. I didn't roll them in sugar but sprinkled sugar on them while they were cooling. The amount of spices were perfect. I scooped the cookies out with a small cookie scoop. I'm adding this recipe to my recipe box.
