Ginger Cookies

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Nandabear

These cookies go really fast. I always have to double the batch. If you like to use cut outs and make them into different shapes it works great too.

These are very tasty and very easy to make. In 45 minutes I made and baked all of the cookies. Thank you so much, travelfanatic, for sharing this recipe with us!! I will be making these again for sure. UPDATE: These are still chewy the next day!! Again, thanks travelfanatic!!!
