I baked these for the first time last year and was reminded of their deliciousness after my friend Krista blogged about them. I needed to make something sweet for a get together with the girls today and these fit the bill perfectly. They are kind of a long and exacting recipe but believe me they are worth it! So gingery and good. I also like to sprinkle a little fleur de sel on the cookies after they are done baking, it really adds a pop of flavor.
