    Nanna D's Note:

    These are big cake-like cookies - a favourite on the Canadian east coast and definitely an old family recipe.

      Well, after my friend Lou (Saturn) made these cookies and talked about them in the kid-friendly forum, I had to try them! I made them when I really needed a baking fix (my form of therapy!) one evening. These baked up light, fluffy, more like flattened mini-cakes than what I think of as cookie-texture. They are soft, spicy and delicious! I also added about 1/4 tsp of ground cloves to the ginger and cinnamon, and I used canola oil in place of shortening. This is a fantabulous cookie, one that I will definitely make again and again. Thanks, Nanna D!

      These are great cookies! Instead of 1 Tbsp of ginger, I put in 1 tsp of ginger and 1 tsp allspice. I am not a fan of a strong ginger flavour so decided to err on the side of safety. These will be shared with my quilting group tomorrow and I can't wait!! Thank you for sharing! Made for PAC Spring 2008
