    startnover's Note:

    These are basically a soft ginger snap. I made them for my 8 year olds class and they were fighting over the extras. I also made them for a very sweet older friend who said she hadn't tasted these since her mother made them when she was little, They make a ton and stay fresh for quite awhile. This works perfectly for Christmas or large amounts of company!

      Love 'em! I halved the recipe but should have made the whole thing because they were gone in a flash!

      These are extremely good hot out of the oven...soft and sugary with a nice spice flavor and they melt in your mouth. You can't stop eating them! After they cooled they became firmer and chewy. I liked reheating them in the microwave. If you bake them for a shorter time they will probably stay softer. I scaled down the recipe to 20 servings and it made 44 cookies scooped out with my half tablespoon. I used butter crisco and rounded off the odd measurements. I found the dough to be soft but easy to roll in the sugar. I baked mine for 12 minutes. Thanks for this yummy recipe! Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.
