      Fantastic cookies! Crunchy edges, chewy centers, delicious with or without the glaze --and the glaze is good enough to just eat with a spoon. They weren't quite gingery enough for me, but I think that's the fault of a less-than-ideal spice source, not the fault of the recipe.

      Great cookies! They have fantastic flavor and a wonderful soft, chewy texture. I must have gotten a little happy with the glaze, as I did have to mix up more to finish the cookies, but otherwise made no changes. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
