my favorite cookie of all time

Rebecca from Springfield, MA

At risk of gushing, the first time I made this cookie it became my new instant favorite (that's saying a lot compared to my molasses currant cookies). It's an adult cookie - less sweet and more complicated taste than the sugar cookies you feed to kids. And Liz, below, is right about lemon glaze. Fabulous, wonderful, magical recipe.

Outstanding!

Liz from Sparta, NJ

I've made these cookies twice and they're a huge favorite. Tip: try them with a lemon glaze, instead of plain... the lemon, ginger, and cranberries together are OUTSTANDING!

Delicious and Different!

Jennifer from Moreno Valley, CA

I love this cookie-can't stop eating them. The directions are clear, the cookie is easy to make, they taste great and look beautiful. Great recipe, thank you! I did drizzle the glaze over the cookies instead of spreading it. Other than that no changes-perfect. The combination of flavors go so well together and is a little different of a cookie.I will make these again-they lokk and taste gourmet.
