At first glance, these look a bit like traditional chocolate chip cookies. But one bite quickly reveals white chocolate chunks plus spicy dashes of ginger and cinnamon. —Bonnie Baumgardner, Sylva, North Carolina

"These cookies are simple, quick, and delicious. I sprinkled them with red or green granulated sugar about half way through baking to make them look more festive."
