These have been made by me and my 2 sisters for years. I don't know where the recipe came from originally. These always turn out perfectly. I like a soft cookie so I leave these in for the minimum amount of time. But if you want a "gingersnap" leave them in longer. I'm not sure how many cookies this makes.
