Ginger Chocolate Chip Cookies
Root Root for the Root!

I'm still on my ginger kick, and made these Ginger Chocolate Chip Cookies. Chocolate and ginger - very good combo, no?

This recipe is from the Ultimate Chocolate Cookie Book (page 184). My friend Brian has the book and I copied a few recipes before he headed off to Stanford. Although this book has some good recipes, it is light on the proof-reading. The ingredient list calls for 3 cups of chocolate chips, but the instructions never tell you to add them to the batter. I put them in at the end, just like any other chocolate chip recipe. For the yummy Ginger Chocolate Cookies, they list the ground ginger (1 T and 2 teaspoons) - the teaspoons are mixed with sugar for the coating - but it never mentions adding the tablespoon of ground ginger to the batter!

It has 3/4 cup finely chopped crystallized ginger (my favorite - prevents nausea and tastes great!) and 3 cups of chocolate chips (as long as you know when to add them to the batter :)

The cookies came out way flat, but the ginger flavor is quite tasty. They were a hit at work. Next time, I think I might just add ground ginger and crystallized ginger to a basic Toll House recipe and see if I get more "lift."
