I get a great deal of satisfaction making and giving time-tested yuletide treats like these soft, chewy cookies. Dipping them in white chocolate makes great gingersnaps even more special. —Laura Kimball, West Jordan, Utah

"These have been a favorite for years and the recipe is always requested. I use white almond bark for the dipping and it works perfectly. (I melt in a double boiler, chocolate also works well.)"

"I didn't care for these at all. They tasted like their ingredients: oil and sugar, baked up crisp. They were not chewy at all, even though I kept them to the lower end of directions- 10 minutes. I disliked them so much that I tossed the 3 batches I baked and the remaining dough. I will look for a recipe that calls for some butter and brown sugar for more flavor and chewy softness. I cannot recommend these. Yuk."

"I had these for the first time in a Christmas Cookie Take & bake Class in 2006 and we've made them every year since. My only problem with these cookies is we eat them way too fast and the dough is somewhat hard to work with."

"My daughter won state fair cookie contest with this recipe. We don't bother to dip them--the taste is so good, these cookies don't need dressing up."

"These are awesome! Nice and chewy.

For the person wondering about the amount of ginger: 3 tsp. is equal to 1 Tbsp. so nothing has changed about the recipe :)"
