These are great. Besides almonds, ginger is my favorite flavor, both in asian cooking and COOKIES! Hope you like these!

This is a wonderful cookie recipe. Very quick and easy to make. I dropped my cookie dough into muffin tins and they came out looking perfectly round...they didn't last long though!
