      I gave this recipe 5 stars because my mom loved them. She is a BIG ginger snap lover and these cookies put a smile on her face and that was my intention. Oh by the way I thought they were delicious too. I did double up on the ginger and just over 1/4 tsp on the ground clove. Also, I chose not to add the sugar topping and have submitted a photo. Ok so it is now the 3rd time I've made these cookies and I have the perfect recipe for me. As I said previously I doubled the ginger. What I did differently this time is I used the 1/4 tsp of clove the recipe calls for. Try it I'm sure you'll like it.
