Soft, chewy, and moist... these spicy cookies are best enjoyed with a nice tall glass of milk! Or some vanilla flavoured rice milk, in my case... LOL!

These cookies are really good and easy to make! I cut out the ginger and added some chocolate chips to make them more kid friendly for my two yr old. He loved them! Thanks

These are great. I can't handle all the gums they put in gluten free foods and these are fabulouse with out them. I did not have blackstrap molasses and they stop selling it at my local grocery store so I used regular molasses. I don't know if it makes a difference but these are GREAT! Thanks katii.

Great tasting cookie,My ginger was old so next time will get fresher ginger to make a gingery flavor, but enjoyed the flavor I ended up with today.My only change was I made a glaze with 2 egg whites and two cups powdered sugar and spooned over the tops. My only negative comment is directions not really clear, first 8 ingred. then mentioned last two but 9th and 10th never mentioned in directions. I just put all in bowl in order listed and mixed well. Came out great.
Thanks for great cookies, next time maybe will try with raisins....
