      We were making stuff for thanksgiving and found this recipe and thought it sounded good, and, knowing that my dad can't STAND cloves and didn't put them in. BIG mistake. And there was not enough ginger in, with not enough ginger and no cloves, they only tasted like egg. But I'm sure the cloves are where most of the flavor comes from. Luckily guests didn't think they were bad. Thanks!

      Oh these cookies are WONDERFUL! The ginger, the cinnamon, the cloves....and I'm guessing the molasses plays a part in the flavor of these also. Fantastic recipe, they're soft and puffy and oh so good. I'll be making these a lot more than just this once! Thanks for sharing the recipe loves2bakeSB. Made for PAC Spring 2011.

      This is a great and tasty recipe. The end result is soft and chewy and smells like heaven when being baked. I will make this again and again.
