    SO good! I choose another ginger cookie recipe to make first and they didn't turn out well at all. I tried again with this recipe and they are amazing! My boyfriend's first comments.. "These are the best ginger cookies I've ever had" and "If I was Santa, I would want these!" Definitely worth trying:)
