This is a really interesting recipe. Don't confuse this with gingerbread; it's nothing like it. This is really a shortbread cookie. The crystallized ginger, a rather exotic ingredient, gives it a wonderful flavor of fresh ginger, not dried, but it doesn't permeate the entire cookie, it comes in bursts each time you bite into one of the pieces of ginger. I had trouble chopping my crystallized ginger into small enough pieces so I softened it with hot water for a couple of minutes; that worked fine. This is a rather grown up cookie for grown-up tastes. For a more refined look, I would make the cookies all one shape - all stars, or all round, rather than making them into Santas or reindeer. Next time I will also sprinkle them with some sanding sugar on top to make them glisten and look more festive. 4 stars
