      Very good, I used only 1 tsp. of ginger and I think that I will use 2 tsp. as the recipe is written, also used a mix of golden syrup and corn syrup as I had no molasses and brown sugar instead of white since I didn't use molasses (still used white sugar to roll cookies in). I didn't have any eggs so I used 1/4 cup applesauce and also threw in 1/4 tsp. cloves. I have since made these again and it is best with 1/4 allspice. My husband says it is his new fave cookie, thanks so much for sharing!
