Hi Daniel - freshly grated gingerroot would be a great addition to this recipe! We'd suggest substituting 2 teaspoons of gingerroot in place of the ground ginger called for in the recipe. Happy baking!

Years ago I ate some ginger cookies that were made with fresh rather than dry ginger. I would like to use fresh ginger grated in this recipe too. Can you recommend how to do this. Thanks.

This is an excellent receipe though I did not make the icing - cookies are great without it and did not need the added calories. Very easy to make, refridgerating for 1 hour is a must or the cookies will stick to your hands when rolling.
