These are about as gingery as you can get, so consider yourself forewarned if you’re not a ginger lover. Actually these bar cookies make a lot of converts to the pleasures of ginger, because they have a strong ginger flavour but since they’re made with ground ginger and crystallised ginger, they have little of the burning spiciness that fresh ginger can impart. Lemon zest in the bars and lemon juice in the glaze add a note of contrast.
