These remind me so much of gingersnaps bought in the store. Very easy to make. I did not have mace, so I used cardamom, and they came out great! I could really taste the molasses, which I love. Definitely a remake!

These cookies are great! I add about a tablespoon of crystallized ginger for more flavor. They cook fast. I usually take them out of the oven after only 10 minutes of cooking. Unlike most cookies, these are at their best a few hours after baking.

Not so great. I followed the directions almost exactly, although I used 2 tsp of ground ginger, a heaping tsp of cinnamon, and 1/4 tsp of nutmeg instead of mace... but they are BLAND! Too bad, because the batter tasted pretty good. ;) Not sure if I should have added more ginger or different spices - maybe some black pepper to give it a good kick.

Truly one of my favorite cookies EVER! I've made them a couple of times now, and they always come out amazing....no substitutions or additions. A great ginger cookie.

Great recipe. I substituted ground cloves for the mace and following aprior reviewers suggestion added wsome crystalized ginger. I also made them a little larger which made what I assume is a chewier cookie. I will make these again . .

Since I didn't have mace, I substituted Allspice and added nutmeg. Cooked in a convection oven for just ten minutes- perfection!
