Delicious! I love to bake with my kids and it is one of the may TV free activities that we do often. I was about to bake some cookies and realized that I was out of eggs! I did and egg-free search and found this great recipe! I didn't roll these out but rather rolled them into balls and then rolled them in white sugar. The first pan got a little crisp as they did really firm up while cooling, by the second pan I fixed the problem and these cookies were perfection! I look forward to make these again soon--Next time I won't even wait for an egg shortage!-February 28,2004. **edited to add, I made this the right way and cut them into pumpkin and leaf shapes to serve with pumpkin dip Pumpkin Pie Dip. Yummy!
Great recipe. Good flavor and texture not to mention easy. I used entirely whole wheat pastry flour and it turned out great. Thanks Jenny!
The flavor of these cookies was very very good, but they ended up being a little more like gingerbread than gingersnaps. That may just come from living in Houston, where it is so humid that crackers go stale by going soft.
Very easy, very tasty. I was out of ground ginger & substituted 2tbsp fresh grated ginger. Also opted to use a mix of brown rice syrup & honey in place of molasses. Chopped bits of candied ginger sprinkled on top made a great addition.
I made it all by my silf. I rold it in to balls and in sugar all like my cookis.They are soft.
The dough for these cookies is so easy to work with that I can see using this recipe with my little grandaughters. It rolled out easily and cut perfectly with my round biscuit cutter, but gingerbread men would have been so much fun. I also sprinkled the unbaked tops of the cookies with a little sugar to make them sparkle. My cookies really didn't "snap", but were more the texture of a great sugar cookie; perhaps I didn't leave them in long enough, but was afraid of creating ginger flavored hockey pucks. Not one cookie went to waste. The next time I make these I'll increase the spices just a bit for more of a ginger flavor. Jenny...I had fun making your cookies.
