An amazing and easy cookie recipe. I added a tablespoon of grated fresh ginger in addition to the chopped ginger, and it makes the cookies more intensely ginger. Everyone loves these cookies. Originally we made them for a vegan friend, but ended up eating them all. We've made three batches in the past week!! Thank you for this wonderful treat. Great with a cup of tea!

Absolutely delightful! My kids loved them, and even I, with a complete lack of a sweet-tooth, couldn't stay away from them. I put the dough on the pan in small Tablespoon scoops, and then gently flattened them slightly with a fork. Sprinkled a little vegan sugar on top and baked, and they came out beautifully. Will definitely make them again!! :)

I'm not a vegetarian, and this is still my go-to recipe for ginger cookies. They are SO good! Soft, spicy, and downright dangerous. My only change is using butter instead of margarine (because that's what we use at our house) and decreasing the water to 1/4 cup. Thanks for a terrific recipe!

Excellent! Very Excellent!! After I mixed everything up, I read the top comments and wondered as chef 463299 did, if the recipe needed an egg or if they would be too health foody. No worries! This is a fantastic cookie. I got 53...I guess mine were a little smaller, but I like to have several cookies, and if they are a little on the small side then I can do that with less calories!

Fantastic recipe! The only change I made was to omit the nutmeg (personal preference) . They are now on my cookie tray for the holidays. Thanks for a terrific recipe.

Wow! A delicious, soft and chewy cookie! I had no fresh ginger so I put in 3 tsp of ground. I also substituted allspice for cloves and canola oil for margarine. With all o the substitutions, they were still amazing! Thanks so much for a great cookie to go on my Christmas treat plate!

These came out quite thin and flat but they tasted good. I did add extra fresh ginger after tasting the dough.

I loved these cookies, kept eating one after another.. The whole family devoured it.. It was chewy and perfect for a cold cozy winter night.
