Things are classics for a reason, but a little updating never hurt anyone. And these most certainly will not hurt you.

Candied Australian ginger coupled with unsweetened dried cherries gives these holiday cookies a nice fruity chew and a bright tartness that shines through the spicy dough.

String cheese was always a lunchbox standby. It may not have been the highlight like chocolate chip cookies or Hostess Sno Balls, but it was salty and fun to eat—an acceptable outlet for those urges to play with your food.
