Triple ginger cookies

Triple Ginger Cookies

These soft ginger cookies are full of ginger—three kinds! It has layers of flavor from ground, grated, and crystallized ginger and just the right amount of molasses.

The recipe is an adaptation from one of my favorite recipe sites, For the crystallized ginger, I like the spiciness of Reed’s, but any type is fine.
