These cookies are one of the best ginger cookies I have had since going gluten free. I really like the taste of ginger so added 1 teaspoon more to the recipe. I let them sit in my refrigerator over night and then rolled them into balls and then flattened them out a little bit. They came out real soft just the way I like them. I will be making these again real soon!
