Disappointed

Made these cookies yesterday. They are expensive to make because of the crystallized ginger and I was disappointed with the flavor. I'll stick to the orange/cranberry or the white chocolate chip/cranberry cookies.

No Title

I love ginger and was excited to try a recipe that didn't have the usual molasses flavour profile. Slightly plumped the cranberries with a splash of brandy.
