    Breeze144's Note:

    I adore these cookies! I found the recipe in a cute cookbook called "365 quick and inexpensive dinner menus". Everyone (even those who say 'I don't like ginger cookies') loves these!

      Excellent, easy recipe. Tastes a lot like Archway soft molasses cookies. Very quick to make. I increased the cinnamon, plus I added a pinch of allspice.

      these are so yummy! pretty easy too! the only thing i would like to say is for us who aren't into baking as much and may not know- the cookies need to be soft (i mean, really soft- like they are still undercooked) or else they will harden after they come out. I am not a baker , and didn't know that cookies naturally harden a little after they come out of the oven... that being said, they are still good- just harder than intended!! great recipe!

      Good cookies. But I waaay overcooked them (it just seemed too wet inside otherwise). They turned out to be perfectly acceptable ginger snap-like cookies.
