I made this recipe exactly as stated, and now it's in my oven in one puddle-y mess all over the place. I came back to see if I had done anything wrong, and I haven't. I just noticed there is no flour in this recipe. Updated to add that after the first batch just puddled in my oven I added a cup of flour to what was left in the mixing bowl and the cookies came out lovely and cakey, although with not too much ginger flavor. A good adult cookie to have with a cup of coffee, not too sweet, although I would have liked more of a ginger flavor. Updated again: after having discuss the lack of flour with the chef, I'm pleased to change my review and up the stars. It's a good cookie. I will make it again, but I will add more ginger for a stronger flavor. Thanks Di!
