  1. Wonderful recipe. I only used half the sugar and tasted still quite sweet to me. Ours did not flatten out when baking. Definitely will be making again--only problem is it is hard to stop eating....
  2. Sheri, these are the best ginger snaps I have ever had!! Stay soft and flavor is scrumptious! Took them to a church meeting and had to give out copies, everyone just raved over them........thank you!!
    1. Hi Janet, These cookies are soft and chewy and SO good! They aren't the kind that are really crispy. They get a little crisp around the edges and are soft in the middle - as long as you don't cook them too long! Enjoy!
  3. Wonderful! A recipe that I will be making. I have all the necessary ingredients and am amazed that this recipe has such a high yield of cookies. Love your recipes Sheri!
