    Perfect! Just had the oven on convection and they burnt... But really no kidding the burnt ones were really good too!

    I Veganised this recipe by substituting butter for soya margarine, and the egg for a teaspoonful of Xanthan gum, a splash of soy milk and drizzle of sunflower oil. I also used some ground almonds to substitute about 2 tablespoons of the flour. Appart from being a little on the toasty side, they worked really well! :)

    These are very good, they freeze well, and look so pretty. I add a little more powdered ginger than is called for

    I used flavored sugar just to give them a little more visual appeal

    I love ginger cookies and I get my crystallized ginger at Trader Joe's. They have two kinds and t hey are both worth using when you are cooking.

    I actually make these sugar-free and they are delicious. I use only Splenda and do not use crystallized ginger but dust the unbaked cookies with Splenda for a similar effect.

    if you go to an Asian market to buy your crystallized ginger it is much less expensive than if you buy it in the supermarket many of their items are great and their prices on things are so reasonable. Matt Kennedy

    These are terrific! When Martha originally made them on-air she sifted together the flour, ground ginger, baking soda and salt before adding, then blended in the crystallized ginger with a spoon. I add the sugar on top before baking and my oven bakes perfect cookies in about 12 minutes. Also, I always use room temperature butter to get the right consistency. These are my brother's favorite cookies to this day!

    The baking time should be 14 minutes. This recipe is exactly the same as the one for Lemon Ginger Drop Cookies, except that one says to bake for 7 minutes, remove from oven and sprinkle with sugar, then bake for a further 7 minutes. Did you wonder why this recipe says you need more sugar for sprinkling, then doesn't say anything when you need to use that sugar??!!
