Yes, however, I felt that 1/2 cup of candied ginger was not enough because i could not taste the candied ginger. I would add at least a cup of candied ginger. Also, once the cookie was cooked there was no sugar left on the top of the cookie as it was in the picture. The cookie tasted good.

Make it Again? Jo P. would make this recipe again.
