MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 28, 2014

"Nice cookies, I doubled the ginger and added 1 tsp of cinnamon. Also subbed butter for the shortening. I think they really needed more ginger than 1 tsp"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 22, 2013

"These are great! I flattened mine only slightly. I used butter in place of shortening & I also added a teaspoon of cinnamon and a bag of cinnamon chips! I rolled some in turbinado sugar and some it course white sugar. Both sugars added a nice crunch. I will make these again!"

"The best fall cookie recipe...."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 11, 2013

"Hubby loved these and they do have a homey, spicy aroma when baking. I added cinnamon to mine as well and threw in some butterscotch chips which added to the flavor. I agree they wouldn't have to be rolled in sugar."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 8, 2013

"Delicious recipe! I followed the recipe except added tiny bits of candied ginger. Next time, I wouldn't bother to roll them in sugar. Makes them a little too sweet."
