    Annacia's Note:

    I think that these are just about the untimate ginger cookies. If you don't over bake them they will maintain a softness that is so toothsome. Warning! These cookies are telepathic and will call to you from the cookie jar to come and get them.

      Oooooo....These are delicious little gems! The perfect texture, so light and fluffy. They were a breeze to make. I was out of ground cloves, so I substituted allspice. Baked for 8 mins. I'll be making these wonderful cookies again. Thanks for posting!

      Wonderful gingersnap cookies! The dough was so fluffy and easy to work with and they baked up just beautifully. Nice and spicy, perfect with a cup of coffee or dunking in a glass of ice-cold milk ;) Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for the Sweet December holiday event, 2013
