This is very similar to a family recipe we make every Christmas. Our version uses shortening instead of butter, and increases ginger to 1 teaspoon. They are delicious with the perfect texture - chewy and crispy. Make sure not to over-bake or they are too hard. This is a great recipe to use for cookie exchanges or bake sales, because you can make dozens and dozens very easily.
