    Made these for my husband to take friends yesterday and for the office cookie exchange today. BIG hit! They were delish!!!! I might do without the crystalized ginger next time - it was a tad strong and difficult to find in our little town. - 12/22/08

    If you look at the ingredient details very few of the ingredients listed above were used. Also, the recipe indicates 3 dozen cookies (36) but the servings is 74 - so a serving is only half a cookie. With the ingredients listed each cookies is about 100 calories. - 12/14/08
