    Chef floWer's Note:

    My daughter loves cookies so I found this simple ginger cookie and it has no eggs (which is a bonus for me). I've decorated the cookies few different ways. Example: sprinkle pink edible glitters or hundred and thousands or left the cookie with no decoration and icing. You can use what ever shape you fancy. Whatever variations I made with my 3 year old she enjoyed them. I found this recipe in a booked called "The Great Big Cookie Book" by Hilaire Walden. It was in the kid's section of the book.

      These cookies are nice basic cookies, which are easy and quick to make and yield a crunchy, yummy result. I enjoyed the addition of cocoa and that they were eggless, yet thought they could have benefitted from a tad more spice. Maybe some cinnamon and cloves or just a little bit more ginger next time. But all in all a great basic recipe, that I look forward to making again.
      I made half the recipe and ended up with 26 cookies.
      THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this lovely recipe with us, Chef floWer!

      Nice cookies. We made Christmas shapes. We did not glaze; just ate them plain. You cannot taste the chocolate at all. They are more of a spice cookie. Very nice and crispy. Thanks.

      For my 5 star rating I am really taking the healthy aspect into strong consideration. There is no egg to add cholesterol, I used 1/3 cup of Splenda Brown Sugar, a slightly generous 1/3 cup of heart health margarine and made up the 12 cup with unsweetened applesauce. I simply LOVE that these cookies use whole wheat. I opted for the "few" drops of vanilla. I needed to add more flour to get a dough that was stiff enough to cut well (likely because I added the applesauce). Best of all they taste wonderful! the amount of ginger is right on the button for a nice little nip of ginger. I chose to skip the icing and not add all that extra (and un-needed) sugar. It's a great recipe.
