    HokiesMom's Note:

    From an advertisement handout I found a gem of a ginger cookie recipe. The original recipe calls for "Sugar in the Raw" or a very coarse granulated sugar but I've used fine sugar and colored coarse sugars and they both worked well. There is 1-2 hours needed to chill the dough so allow extra time for preparation.

      What a great recipe, Mel! The spices make for such a yummy winter cookie and the texture is lovely crunchy. MMmm! The cookies look very pretty, too, like little snowy heaps that glitter in the winter sun. :)
      I made half the recipe ending up with 17 big cookies that wont last long around here.
      As I was a little pressed for time I chilled the dough for 30 min. in the fridge and then popped it into the freezer for another 10 min. That worked out perfectly.
      THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this treat with us!
