This was originally posted by my cyber-friend Moxie; I was lucky enough to rescue it during an 'adoption' drive. My suggestion for candied ginger is Evelyn/Athens' #140699 -- absolutely delicious and worthy of a wonderful cookie like this one. Moxie's original intro read: "Candied ginger is one of my favorite things. Before you buy it on the spice aisle, look in the Asian foods section of your supermarket. Usually it is sold in bags there, and is much less expensive. This cookie recipe came from the back of one of those bags of candied ginger -- but I added the sesame oil because I think the nuttiness of it is such a nice complement to the ginger. Prep time includes an hour for the dough to chill."

Yum! These are great!, and I know the grandkids won't like them because the ginger has a "bite" to it! So, I get to eat all 33 that the recipe made :) I used a cookie scoop, made without the sesame oil as I don't use it. Nice and chewy, I'm in love!
