I love ginger a whole lot (I have a dedicated Gin-Gins jar in the living room), so of course one of my favorite things to make around the holidays are these triple ginger cookies packed with ground, fresh and candied ginger. This recipe requires refrigeration, so I usually prep the night before and bake in the morning. Not only do you fill your house with delicious smells first thing, you also get fresh cookies for breakfast!
