Chewy Ginger Cookies

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Gardening Girl

My mom's friend gave her a batch of these for her 84th birthday there were more than my mom could eat so she gave me some to take to work to share. I had so many requests for the recipe that I just knew they were special. So here it is. I would like to add that despite the review I have made these cookies many times without any problems. The reviewer did ask the community what might have gone wrong and it was decided that because she had used a stand mixer instead of hand mixing the result was a cake like batter. So it is important to note that hand mixing is the method that should be used.
