I was in the mood for some spiced cookies so I decided to try this recipe. These cookies are awesome! I ate about 5 and brought the rest to work for my co-workers. Each and every person loved them. Definitely give this recipe a try. FYI: When you take them out the oven they look a tad under cook but don't worry...they will be so soft and chewy. I baked them on a Sunday night and they were still soft the following Wednesday.
Exactly what I was looking for when I wanted to make what I've known for years as Ginger Snaps. Very straightforward recipe and easy to put together, although I just used my hand in lieu of an electric mixer.Stayed loyal to the recipe, but threw in a few quick splashes of water to bring the dough together before shaping it.Used Christmas-colored sugar for rolling, and they were a bit hit! :D
This recipe is everything I hoped it would be. I prefer soft cookies and it is hard to find a good soft spice cookie recipe. This recipe is a keeper. It will become part of my Christmas baking tradition, and make an excellent addition to my rotation for fresh baked gifts!
I make a similar cookie by leaving out the cloves and allspice, but adding Golden Raisins..the rest is the same...they are excellent! I got the recipe from a winner on Good Morning America several years ago. These are always on my cookie list at Christmas time.
