      This is a wonderful cookie recipe. Very quick and easy to make. I dropped my cookie dough into muffin tins and they came out looking perfectly round...they didn't last long though!

      You're right, they are pefect! I'm not a big fan of ginger cookies myself, I made these as part of my Mom's birthday dinner. I ended up leaving the entire batch at her house so as not to tempt myself at home. The cookies took on a sort of crackly appearance on top. I slightly underbaked the first batch, and slightly overbaked the second. I couldn't decide which I liked better because they are simply fantastic. You have converted me to a ginger cookie fan! Thanks!

      I've made these for two years now and I love them. Mine have had a slight crackly appearance on top too. They are not fancy but they sure are tasty. I really like that they keep a softer texture.
