      These are pretty good. Softer than my original recipe i use. My recipe is more like a gingersnap. I did like the taste of these.

      This is great. The end result is so authentic because they are so thick. They make great ginger men, old fashioned and good tasting. I think next time I'll decrease the ginger a bit. Just a little strong for my taste. Dough was easy to roll, and baked up nice and even, no soft spots, although with larger cutters, more time is needed. Chill time is a must. Thanks, this one is tops.
