We made half a batch using 1 egg, omitting the ginger root (as the ginger from the ground ginger is plenty), and did them as drop cookies baking for 12 minutes. We sprinkled with colored sugar after baking, but would suggest doing that before baking so it will adhere to the cookies. Chopped almonds would be great in these cookies. They are moist and yummy and they go great with coffee. Made for PAC fall 08' game.
