Recipe by Demelza

A friend of mine gave me this recipe years ago. It makes a wonderful soft chewy ginger cookie. You could add some finely chopped candied ginger to it if you wanted. I don't flatten these, but I use my KitchenAid stand mixer, so the dough is softer. I do chill the cookies about 10 minutes before baking them. This is another cookie that would be great to use for an icecream sandwich.
