grandma2969, this is the second time I've made these, love um!! I have no idea what I did in 07 but they turned out like you said they would this time. I added the crystalized ginger, and fresh grated ginger this time but it still didn't have the bite I was looking for....they are delicious even without the extra zip. I took pix again and I hope others try your recipe as they don't know what they're missing!!! yuuummmmm!!
