we really liked this recipe, I was looking for a ginger bread recipe that didn't have Molasses (I just didn't have any molasses on hand) this is what I found. I did change it a bit.. We like our cookies to be sweet so I added an extra cup of sugar to it then I added 3/4 c. water to get the consistency back. My family likes them and the extra sugar didn't make them too sweet.. You should try it with the sugar.. It's GOOD
