I made these for work, but made about 50 smaller 2-3 inch cookies. I thought the recipe could use 2x to 3x more ginger since the flavor seems very subtle to me. However, my coworkers really loved it, and it was a decent cookie for dunking in your morning coffee. Really good with white chocolate drizzled over it. This recipe makes A LOT of dough.
By coincidence my six year old and I made these cookies yesterday. We made two batches-one with dark molasses and one with regular. The dark is much spicier, but both are very good. It is easy enough that she was able to do most of it herself. The 8 cookie yield is based on the very large cutters used. We used regular sized cutters and got about 3 dozen per batch. Definitely a keeper for our family.
