    Redneck Epicurean's Note:

    Wrote this recipe down while watching Food Network while recovering from surgery. It was featured in the "Food Network Caters Your Hawaiian Wedding". This was one of Paula Deen's contributions. I love ginger cookies and can't wait until I can get in the kitchen and whip up a batch. They looked SOO good!

      I have a passion for ginger and all things gingery so I made these for Christmas. My roommate's daughter pronounced them 'the best ginger cookies ever' and, since there are now only crumbs in the box, it's safe to say they were a hit for everyone.

      I made these following the recipe exactly except I used a heaping teaspoon of ginger. I also used a cookie scoop rather than rolling them by hand. They came out beautifully...crunchy enough to snap after they cooled but still with a bit of "chew" in the center. It's really important that you sift the dry ingredients! The perfect ginger cookie, IMHO.
