    These are my very favorite cookie of all time; even better than chocolate chip. I also make them every Christmas (and every other holiday). Only change I make is to use 2/3 bag of the chips. I made my first batch with the whole bag, and there just wasn't enough dough for all those chips.

    I added these to my Christmas cookie repertoire this year, and they were by far the most enjoyed by all.

    These were delicious, a great holiday cookie. I halved the recipe but other than that followed it exactly, I really like ginger so I think I will add a little more next time. Thanks!


I am a 56 year old Gramma that, for the first time in my life, has purchase myself a computer, and I didn't know what i was missing!! <br> <br>I have a husband tha I adore, and 4 grandchildren that of course surpass all others - lol - I am disabled, and am an at home person, so I have a lot of time on my hands, to play with my recipes, and I am enjoying every bit of it - <br>My husband will eat anything that I cook, so I have carte blanche as far as that goes, so I have a great time trying out new recipes. <br> <br>Paula Deen has published some of my favorite cookbooks, her recipes are easy and quick to do. Her sweets are fantastics, especially her pound cakes, Yummm <br> <br>I guess the dish that I am famous for is my Christmas ham - my family all comes home for Christmas, and if i don't have my ham they are dissapointed, and my grandson wants the pistachio squares!!! so I guess that is the dishes that I'm famous for.
