Fresh Ginger Cookies

If you love ginger, you’ll love these cookies. I’ve been obsessing over ginger lately.
A lot of recipes that i make call for ginger and I simply could not stand the taste of it,
but i refuse to leave it out. Also I’ve been reading on how good it is for your health.
So I’ve been working around it… trying to find a way to cook with it and actually enjoy it.
I pretty much found out to use it in moderation and pair with other ingredients that go well
with ginger. Now i will cook with ginger, matter of fact even bake.
