    Delicous, and has just a little sparkle of an aftertaste. Much too good to give the kids--although they love it. M  -  19 Dec 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a very good recipe if you don't like the extra sweet style of regular chocolate chip cookies. My family and friends loved the cookies, and I wiil be making them again. For an added twist, put in half the amount of ginger, and and 2 tables spoons of cinniman. Very good!  -  19 May 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Absolutely loved these! Definitely do not omit the ginger-it is what makes these cookies delicious and unique. Perfect soft and chewy texture. The recipe was extremely easy to make and chopping the ginger was not hard at all. Also instead of using chocolate chips try using chopped up pieces of chocolate, it melts better and is more flavorful.  -  25 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
