I like ginger ale and gingersnaps extra spicy, so this cookie has ginger done three ways - ground, candied and fresh! They're not too sweet, and go very nicely with a hot cup of tea.

My friends love these cookies, so this is the most efficient process of making them that I've come up with.

Step 1: Ingredients

½ cup butter
1 cup packed golden or dark brown sugar
1 large egg
¼ cup molasses
1 tsp vanilla
3-6  pieces candied ginger, chopped
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp fresh grated ginger
1 tbsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ground cloves
pinch ground cardmom
2 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
granulated sugar for rolling
Those sound wonderful! And you have such awesome pictures of the process. Well done :)
