This was a huge hit at a recent cookie swap I hosted. I made the Original Tollhouse Chocolate Chip cookies with white chocolate morsels and finely chopped candied ginger in place of semi-sweet morsels. I also added chopped pecans, but this can be omitted if desired. It was a great twist on the classic. As long as you keep the ratios the same (i.e. same total quantity of added morsels, nuts, etc) to the original it comes out perfectly!

What are your favorite twists on the classic?

Jessica, I love ginger and the white chocolate combo is great.  I have submitted a recipe for a White chocolate fudge that has crystallized ginger, pistachios, dried apricots and of course white chocolate.
The cookies sound great and I just may make a batch this week..if I can find everything. (I just moved and I'm still looking for stuff)

I've added nuts (walnuts or pecans) to my chocolate chip cookies, but I've never tried any other twists.

I made my White Chocolate-Ginger Cookie dough yesterday and tossed it into the 'fridge overnight.   I thought that following the original recipe said I had to add 1 cup of chopped candied ginger .... and I thought that 1 cup of ginger was an enormous amount for one batch of cookies.  But I follow recipes very carefully the first time I use one.  I made the dough and added the ginger. (no nuts)
I baked them this morning ..........
Very, very good cookies EXCEPT they need more ginger!!  Amazing.
These are cookies well worth trying.

And I made a batch of regular  Toll House chocolate chip cookies EXCEPT I used 100% dark brown sugar ..... no white sugar and no golden brown sugar.   This made a darker, of course, cookie but not too much difference.  Now I'll be very comfortable using either dark or regular bown sugar when I cook.

I checked, by searching for the recipe and I don't know why it does not come up.  But here is is.
Trail Mix Fudge
1/2 Cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup dried apricots, cut into 1/2 inch dice
1/2 cup roasted pistachios, chopped
1/2 Cup crystallized ginger
2/3 Cup sugar
1 Can, 15 ounce size EVAPORATED milk
1/4 tsp salt
8 ounces White Chocolate chips
1 1/2 Cup mini marshmallows
Line an 8 inch square pan with parchment or foil, allow a 2 inch over hang on 2 sides for easy removal
Combine cranberries, apricots, pistachios and ginger in a large bowl and set aside.
In a medium heavy bottom saucepan bring sugar, milk and salt to a boil.  Boil and stir constantly until mixture thickens and turns a light caramel color, about 5 minutes.  Remove from heat and stir in chocolate and marshmallows.  Pour mixture into bowl with fruit and nuts.  Mix until combined.  Press into pan.  cool 1 to 2 hours or until firm. 
Lift from pan by overhanging foil or parchment.  cut into squares.  Makes about 24 pieces.

Tastes great and is a very pretty fudge.
