Ginger Cookies

This is one of my most oft requested cookie when I go to a group function. Or for a very special friend who absolutely loves them and steals them whenever he can. 🙂

I like the fact that the are simple to make, tasty, and still semi-soft compared to ginger snaps. I’m not a fan of overly hard cookies and as long as I don’t over bake these, they turn out perfect!
