    Katherine in Alberta's Note:

    These are the ultimate soft and chewy Ginger Snap cookies! I constantly get requests and compliments on these cookies. I received this recipe from a friend and I have doubled and tripled this recipe for larger batches. These cookies freeze excellent. Enjoy!

      I just made these and my husband keeps sneaking one after the other - let them cool completely and you will find they are crunchy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. I added some orange zest and crystalized ginger to some of the batch. I added 1 tsp of ginger instead of 1/2 tsp because I love ginger!!! Will definitely make these again.

      Made these after tasting one in the holiday market in NYC. It brought back wonderful memories from childhood!

      The cookies were really tasty! They were a bit too doughy in the middle, though, but still very good! Rather than rolling the dough balls in sugar, after they were baked, I sifted icing sugar on them. Thanks for the recipe! :D
