This great tasting ginger cookie really lives up to its name; it's cake-like and the spices really blend together well. This cookie perfectly captures the flavor of the season. Suvilla Jordan, Butler, Pennsylvania

"Meh, I was not impressed with this cookie. It tastes fine, but nothing spectacular. I've made better ginger cookies with other recipes. I didn't care for the cookie texture. Also, the cookie "dough" is more like a batter that you plop on the pan and hope it doesn't run too much."

"1/4 cup sugar blend is the same as 1/2 cup granulated sugar. Google sugar blend."

"Is there a way to make these cookies using regular sugar instead of sugar substitute? I love them made the way they are, but if I dont have the substitute what would the regular sugar substitute be?"
