Posted by dlinnaneThis is a variation of the recipe that I used in the OSSAS tasting category last year (2005) -- The original recipe had ginger in them -- but I"ve made them both ways - These are rich, dense chocolate cookies that are great for cut outs. If you want Chocolate Ginger bread -- add 1 tablespoon of ginger..
