In this week’s section, Tim Carman has the scoop on one ingredient you’re going to want to be on the lookout for: baby ginger.

• Chocolate-Ginger Sandwich Cookies, which would be a great option for your holiday cookie swap.
• Murghi Korma (Chicken in Saffron-Almond Sauce), a fast Indian main course.
• Mushroom Noodle Soup, a simple soup with a wonderful ginger fragrance.
• Pear Cranberry Sauce, for your Thanksgiving meal.
