A ginger cookie or ginger snap can have layers of ginger provided by Ginger root powder as well as the crystallized form of the spice. Pies made from mincemeat or pumpkin may also benefit from the addition of ginger to the recipe.

Stir fries offer an excellent way to incorporate ginger root into your recipes.
