Triple Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Large or small, these triple chocolate cookies are crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Refrigerating the batter for 48 hours before baking is ideal, as this allows the dough to fully form its flavor.
Fantabulous colored, bite-sized macaroons. Divide batter into thirds and color one-third pink and flavor with raspberry flavoring; color one-third yellow and flavor with lemon flavoring; color one-third pale blue and flavor with vanilla. Fill and make sandwich cookies with filling of choice, like peach jam or strawberry preserves.

I based this recipe on Michele's Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies II, and had a WOW! moment when I added the ginger.
