These are spicier (read: more ginger) than the recipe for gingerbread that I use, but since I made them into mini muffins, it worked out well. I added some ground cloves and 1/4 teaspoon salt (because I don't believe in baking without it). I think these will be a regular for X-mas baking for me (although not the only time I will make them). Thanks for the recipe!
