      Spread 4 tablespoons of sugar on a small plate. Shape the dough into 3/4 inch balls and roll in the sugar until lightly coated. Arrange the balls 1 inch apart on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until nicely browned. Cool on the cookie sheet for two minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

      *A helpful hint from the JL -- use pretty crystal glasses, dampened with water to press into the dough for pretty, decorative designs on your cookies.

      These cookies are cookies are terrific. I was a little leery putting cayenne pepper in a cookie but they are great. Just the right mix of spices make these by far the best gingersnaps I have ever eaten. Thank you for posting. Made for PAC, Spring 2008
