Chewy Chocolate Ginger Cookies

These are my favorite cookies to make for the holidays.  They are sophisticated enough to give as gifts, yet they are a simple drop cookie; no frosting or decorating needed.  They also freeze extremely well once they are baked.  The spicy flavor is intense while the chocolate keeps them sweet and kid friendly.

Here is a link to the original recipe from Martha Stewart

When I make mine I triple the recipe so I can get about 6 dozen cookies.  This recipe works very well in double and triple batches.  I use salted butter.  I also add a teaspoon of vanilla per batch.  There is no need to buy chocolate and chop it up.  I use high-quality chocolate chips for mine, about 1/2 bag per batch.  In Martha’s recipe it calls for rolling the dough into balls and then chilling them for 20 minutes before baking.  I did not do this, it’s not necessary.  The dough has been already been chilled so, roll the balls, roll in sugar, and bake.
