Christmas Gingery Chocolatey Delight.

I've been making these Ginger Chocolate Chip bars via Real Simple for a couple of years now and they have quickly become a family favorite.  I thought I would share with y'all since I just made 2 batches and have "tested" my way through 3 bars now.  Fat Yuletide glutton! I'm wrapping up the remainders for the Grand Slam's preschool teachers.

Enjoy!

 (PS: the recipe calls for putting parchment down first and buttering the parchment.  I don't do this...I just butter the pan.  Parchment for cookies = YES.  Bars = NO.)
