Great cookies. I used Splenda granulated and Splenda Brown to make the cookies with and skipped the sugar coating (because I wanted to eat some of these myself, lol). The spice addition is very good taste addition and they baked beautifully. The recipe was very well behaved and gave my no problems at all but they did give me a smile when I had 2 with a cup of Earl Grey. :D

What wonderful cookies! Made as directed. The dough was very soft, and I felt I wanted to add more flour but kept true to the amounts and it worked out perfectly. For the coating, I only needed/used 1/2 cup sugar and 3 tbsp cinnamon and had leftover. The flavor of the ginger comes thru in the brown sugar taste of these cookies. The flavors truly wake up your palate as they combine well, yet are destinctly seperate. This recipe will wow your friends and family. Definitely great for gift giving also. Thanks for another keeper Jan! :)
