    Redneck Epicurean's Note:

    This recipe was one I picked up in gourmet class in college. It was my teacher's grandmother's recipe and she made us a batch while we prepared our own cookie recipes. They were SO good and when she spoke of making them with her grandmother, you could tell that those memories were very special to her. Make them a part of your cookie jar stock!

      This recipe is delicious. I halved the recipe and made the frosting with all butter and no ginger. They are delicious!
