This recipe was given to me by an elementary school teacher I work with. She does a mini cooking lesson with her students every Friday and they recently made these. So soft and chewy. These are the best!

Too good! It's really difficult to stop eat them!
Also the dough was delicious, he, he!
To the recipe I added 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger and I replaced the mollasses half with caramel and halg with apple jelly.
I'm really glad I prepared the double amount.
Thanks a lot for this winner!

Mine didn't flatten out but that sure didn't hurt the final outcome of the taste. Really good ginger cookies. The inside is soft with a firm outside. As awalde says, it's hard to stop eating them! I used Splenda for the sugar in the cookies and sparkling sugar a the decoration. Photo may be seen here (in Savor):

Yummy ginger cookies! Nice and spicy and a great texture. The dough seemed like it was going to be hard to roll into a ball but although it was soft it wasn't sticky so it worked out fine. Love these - thanks for sharing the recipe!
